You can try using a plumb bob and story sticks to accurately gauge where your outlets will be on the back. This is one of those installation things I don’t have figured out perfectly. Of course if you’re doing it at home you can take your time and do something fancy but on an installation job working out of a truck at the end of a day this is a task I don’t like doing.

The reason for the plumb bob is if you measure from the wall down low at the corner the wall might be out of plumb enough to throw off your measurements. Levels aren’t as accurate imo.
