Yea, thought I was going to do the right thing and replace some wall outlets; bathroom,kitchen with GFIz'.[to much snow for anythin else]
But the existing boxes seem to shallow! Your standard gfi ya get from H-Dpot is a fatty! Is there a lower profile outlet some were?
I have seen threads on the odd size of the boxes like width, height. unless I missed one or ..ten.
I know alot of you out there have GFIz in the places descrbed.
Suggestions please?

Gee I can't say about smaller size. One thing you can do though is to put a GFI circuit breaker in the breaker box.
Look into that.
