Re: Adjust an electrical outlet
Turn the power off to the outlet.
Remove the cover plate.
Remove the top and bottom screw that holds the outlet in.
Pull the outlet out so it is out of the way.
Pull the mounting nails or cut them with a sawwzall. Be careful not to drop the box in the wall.
Slid the box in untill flush with the wall.
Drive two new mounting nails into the stud.
Reinstall the outlet and the cover plate.
Turn electric back on.
If you drive a screwdriver tip in under the head of the nails you may be able to pry them out.
Hope that helps,
