I am attempting to install a light switch in my living room, but the horizonal wooden stirps which are behind the wall, is broken directly behind the light switch, thus I have nothing to screw the light switch into, to secure it.
Furthermore, I tried to install a light switch holder (a face place with about an 2" depth (to accommodate the wiring) and i thought this might work because it uses 4 screws to secure to the wall, instead of the 2 in the light switch, but again, the same problem: the screws have nothing to secure to.
Please see the attached photos, for a clearer picture of my problem.
