How to Splice and Relocate Telephone Cables and Electrical Wiring – Partitioned junction boxes are ideal when you don’t want to have two separate boxes close together as with your application, not only for the splice, but they can also be used for mounting your outlet and telephone jack
How To Splice a Telephone and Electrical Cable in the Same Box
I am trying to move my Phone Jack and Electrical Outlet down the wall in the Kitchen of my House.
- Since the wires are not long enough I will be adding a junction box to splice the wire and add about 3 feet to them.
- Can a junction box share both the phone splice and the electric splice or will I have to have 2 boxes next to each other, one for each the phone line and electric wire?
This electrical wiring question came from: Todd, a Handyman from Fairfax Station VA.
Additional Comments: Thanks for the help
Thanks for your electrical wiring question Todd.
How to Splice and Relocate Telephone Cables and Electrical Wiring
- The telephone cable and the electrical cable can share the same box only if you get a 2-gang box that has the provision for a partition.
- These partitioned electrical junction boxes may be available from the large hardware outlets, but if not you can call a local wholesale electrical supply and pick one up.
- These partitioned junction boxes are ideal when you don’t want to have two separate boxes close together as with your application, not only for the splice, but they can also be used for mounting your outlet and telephone jack, you just need to get the right combination cover and inserts.
