Ox Box Gas Outlet Box, 1/2" NPT
Sioux Chief Ox Box Gas Outlet Box provides a profesionally looking and cost effective solution for any gas appliance installation needs.
Just what I needed
I ran the gas line in the wall because I didn't know what my clearances behind the range would be, then ran into difficulty enclosing it after the fact. (I know!) The Ox Box Gas Outlet Box is the lifesaver I needed!
I like this box for a gas install as it makes for a simple connection and a clean look with minimal outside-the-wall installation for saving space. I use CSST and run it right to this box with a female fitting. Once in the wall, the gas line is protected and you don't have any black pipe to mess with (at least for a stove or dryer).
Exactly what I was looking for...
We wanted a neat installation for the appliance piping for our range and clothes dryer. This item allows the gas valve to be set behind the plane of the wall, and finished with a bezel (just like an ice maker valve box). Other nice features are the 90 degree gas valve - I like the fact that I can use a shorter CSST appliance connector, and not have to bend it awkwardly at the valve connection when I have to move the appliance. The kit comes with mounting options for both stud-nailing and mid-span perforated hanger. I used the perf, which is thick and holds the box well. It also comes with a 1/2" stainless plug, so you can plug the valve outlet and pressure test with the valve open (remember - most gas cocks have body ratings of 600psig, but the valve seats are usually only good for 3-5 psig. A 10psig test can leak through the valve seal.)I would recommend this product.
