I want to add an electric outlet on the other side of a wall that has an outlet.
The wiring would be trivial.
However, I don't like the common retrofit box that uses a pair of fly-out
plastic tabs to grab the drywall. Hard pulls on electric plugs may break the
tabs or the drywall.
If I put the retrofit box next to a stud, is it kosher to add some screws inside
(at an angle) or use glue to attach it to the stud?
Or is there a more secure type of retrofit box?
