1 Pre-Contruction Bracket for:
The pre-construction brackets did help layout of the framing, and building of back-boxes, because they are true to size. They are vacuum-formed, so nicely thin to fit behind the drywall, but oh-so flexible and floppy. The drywall rotary tool can easily cut right through them or pushes them out of the way. This is even having blocked them as rigidly into place as possible by stapling 2×4’s into the back-box interiors for support. So, yes, they did help, but I ended up measuring out and drawing cutout lines on the drywall to visually guide the tool as I traced around. I can only give them a 2-3 star for what they cost.
I read a complaint about these being somewhat flimsy, which they are (and why I give them just 4 stars), but their purpose is only to be used as a guide for the sheetrock installers to cut around. Without them, getting the proper size holes in the proper location in new construction would be very difficult – so they do exactly what they need to do. They do seem higher in price than they should be – or at the price they could be a bit thicker and stiffer – but they solve a problem… personally, I think they should be supplied with the speakers – but being a separate item means you don’t need to buy the actual speakers until you’re ready to install them.
