Title: Protecting electrical device assemblies during installation

Abstract: An electrical device assembly, for mounting behind a wall surface, includes an electrical device mechanically attached to a mounting plate, and a rigid protector extending over the device to protect the device during wall construction. The hard metal protector enables an uninterrupted sheet of drywall or other wall facing material, hung in place over the device, to be cut through with a saw or router without risk of damaging the device by incidental contact with the cutting blade.
