Image Number 2 for United States Patent #3975074.
Disclosed is a standing box incorporating electrical convenience outlets and adapted for selective electrical and mechanical connections to a floor box. The standing box is made as a single integral structure which facilitates both types of connections to an electrical wiring device, such as an electrical receptacle, mounted in the floor box. The mechanical connection utilizes an annular sealing gasket which compresses with little or no disruptive torsional displacement when the connection is effected. The standing box presents a relatively low silhouette and hence a relatively small obstruction to surrounding floor surfaces.
