Find modern decorator wall plates, oversized outlet covers, cable TV jacks, narrow or deep versions, and exclusive combination layouts that complete your set. Even buy those hard-to-find light switch plates, whether needed for an electrical wiring system in an older home or an elaborate new lighting installation.
There are a variety of inserts that you can use to easily and quickly order the switch plate you need, a few of which are shown here.
Simply place the insert behind your cover plate to convert the opening. You can easily convert the Decora style opening to a toggle, blank, cable or phone jack, or convert toggle and duplex openings to blanks.
Inserts are an inexpensive way to create your own custom switch plate and are the perfect solution when you can't find the exact configuration you need.
If you can find a cover plate that is similar to the one you need but the devices are in the incorrect order, the best solution is to move your devices to match the plate. If that's not an option for you, find a switchplate that has a Decora Rocker opening where you need something else, and order the appropriate insert to convert that space to what you need.
Here is a sample single Decora Rocker switch plate in ivory with an ivory Decora-to-Toggle insert and a toggle switch.
Important: Please note that when combing low voltage parts such as phone, cable, or ethernet jacks with regular line-voltage switches, light dimmers, and outlet receptacles, a physical barrier or standard partition must exist between the low voltage communication jacks and any line-voltage devices in the wall box.
