Thanks for your help guys. Well it looks like it's either a rivet or a nail going from the top of the box straight up into the ceiling somehow like you said... I can't really tell if it is a rivet or a nail.. now that I think about it... it looks more like a rivet... great.. lol

Sadly, there is no attic access to that part of the house.. it is just ceiling and roof with tiles. I guess I'll have to drill the rivets off. But if I do that, will i be able to attach a new box? I'm sure there must be a way, but I just don't wanna leave a huge hole in my ceiling for too long..
