    RRD-8ANS in Wall Mounted Metal Box (Garage)

    Wanting to know what others are doing to with wall mounted metal boxes that are in garage. The top and bottom fins are too big for the metal plate. Need to run down to Home Depot to find a permanent solution. Since this is my house I put electrical tape over the RRD-8ANS terminals and put a plastic cover plate on until I can get this resolved.

    Trim with tin snips. The metal cuts pretty easily.

    Thanks. I was thinking about doing that but wanted to confirm before cutting the >$100 switch :)Has anyone had reception issues with RadioRA2 stuff in metal boxes like this? The main repeater is in the garage ceiling about 15 feet away from this switch.

    I have something almost identical at a much greater distance through two stucco walls and it works great.
