I installed the cover plate on the outlet box the other day and found that it would not seat flush to the wall, on one edge only. The left edge of the cover plate is fine, but the right edge sticks out about 1/8″. I guess what happened is that the stud twisted as it dried, and the rotation pushed the right edge of the outlet beyond the plane of the finished wall. My question is, what would be the best tool to use to grind off the blue plastic edging of the outlet box? A utility knife doesn’t really work for me. This is a pretty trivial problem, but I thought I’d see if any of you could help. Thanks.
