Now I've got a new problem tho. The new switch doesn't fit in the box. :lol: And its some weird box + conduit combo thing from 1998. Which means I'm guessing it isn't likely that I can just get a deeper box. #FML

box fill is a bitch with smart switches.

are you just having wire folding issues, or is the box literally not deep enough for the switch even without the wires?

Box and switch are 1.5", plus the wires sticking out the back, and the metal plate the box connects to.
