"Installing box supports in a double sheetrock wall:"

When installing a cut-in-box in double sheetrock wall, you will find that the box supports or to short to reach inside the box like they are intended to. So to make to box supports work correctly take a flat screwdriver or a small chisel and beat out the back layer of sheetrock on the top and bottom of your hole. Take out as much sheetrock that you can with out effecting the front layer. Now you can insert your box supports and they will now be long enough to reach the inside of the box.
There are a few apprentices out there they do not know this.
