How to install an electrical outlet on a masonry wall?

With flush mounted boxes (similar to old work boxes), it is necessary to remove the receptacle’s “ears”, I used my Klein Tools Side Cutters to easily break them off.

How do you get an outlet out of the wall?

Remove the outlet from the wall to access the box behind it. Use a screwdriver to remove the cover plate on the outlet and set it aside. Unscrew the screws on the top and bottom of the outlet to loosen it from the wall. Once you remove the screws from the outlet, carefully pull it out from the wall so the wires stay attached to it.
