The mounting bracket is supported by the surface raceway and it is configured with at least one latch extending from the back surface of the mounting bracket. Each such latch is configured to engage and latch onto the base component of the surface raceway. A perimeter portion of this mounting bracket is designed to overlay a portion of the cover of this surface raceway.
Abstract: The present invention provides for a protector plate that can be readily secured to furring strips in a manner that reduces and/or eliminates any bowing or deflection of the furring strip during installation. This protector plate is to be located on the furring strip so that its face panel is positioned to protect any service component located there behind from nails, screws or other anchors that may be subsequently driven into the wall. The protector plate contains a front panel having a flange secured thereto with prongs, tabs, sawteeth or other securing assembly jutting or extending from this flange. This securing assembly is designed to penetrate the furring strip along its stronger axis.
