Flood light will not sit flush to surface mount electrical box

Trying to mount the Wyze flood light to an exterior surface mounted electrical box per set up instructions the back plate on light will not sit flat to the box. This leaves a 1/16”+ gap between the back plate and the box. Not weather proof and not very stable. Other than squeezing as much silicon caulk into this difficult to get at gap has anyone come up with a solution?

Would something like this work?


Good suggestion Jeff, thank you for your response. I actually did find two similar foam style caskets at Lowes and had used them the day I created this post and they seem to have done the trick but appreciate your helpful idea. I believe that a casket like this should be included in the floodlight product as this holds up installation of the lights/camera.
