PVC Box With Steel Extender Added ?


Ran some LED lights in a garage attic, switch leg and gable vent fan.

Used 3 pvc octagon boxes for the LED's. Center box that has the above mentioned "made up" was a bit over capacity...20 cu in. needed addl space I'd say also.

I added a steel octagon 1.5" extension to the pvc box. Didn't see any pvc ext boxes.

Not sure if this is kosher or what ? I was going to tap a ground screw to the extender run a ground wire to it...?

Never have run across this so some input would be helpful.

As long as you ground the metal box you're fine.
