    Default Receptacles far back from the wall

    Some of my receptacles are a little far back in the wall, such that the faceplate requires longer screws (half inch instead of quarter inch). The receptacles are just flush with the face plate.

    Can I remove the snap off yokes on the receptacle and use them as washers to bring each out a little?

    My receptacles are installed in metal boxes with 1/2 inch mud plates. Strangely the drywall appears to be half inch too.
