"Replacing residential switch boxes:"

From: Bart Johnson  trabj@email.com

When adding an additional switch to an existing location, find the side of the box the stud is located on. Cut the drywall to the size of the replacement box. { two gang etc.}Remove the old box. With a hack saw, cut the nail holders off of the new plastic box. After installing the necessary wiring, place the new box in the hole and run two drywall screws through the inside of the box into the stud. The finished result will look like the box was always there.
