Looking for an unusual or hard-to-find wall plate layout or configuration? Have an odd assortment of switches, outlets and connectors that requires a custom face plate?
Save time and money with a quick, simple and cost-effective solution: flexible filler inserts for switch plates. Available in a wide range of colors and functionality, these versatile adapters are an ideal alternative to costly custom-made wall plates and are very easy to install. Find recommended filler insert conversions, plus more ideas and solutions for switch plate size challenges. Note, if combing low voltage phone, cable, or ethernet jacks with regular switches, dimmers, and outlets, a physical barrier or standard partition must exist between the low voltage communication jacks and any line-voltage devices in the wall box.
Inserts and blank fillers are a quick and easy solution for creating a flexible switch plate configuration layout. Filler inserts allow you decorate with quality switch plates in a wide variety of finishes and simply adapt the opening to the required usage. They allow for changes should your lighting, phone, or cabling requirements change in the future.

Special Orders - Custom Plates Starting at $100: Need a switchplate not shown? Visit Customize A Wall Plate for quick, affordable solutions for creating a custom light switch plate from a more common size. If you still can't find what you need, it may be possible to special order a finish (except copper). Special orders have a $100 minimum, take 6 weeks to receive, can cost up to 4 times the cost of a standard stocked plate (for small quantities), and must be paid in full prior to ordering. The price per plate on larger quantities will be closer to standard plate pricing. (The more you order the cheaper they get (per piece) because setup costs can then be spread out over more plates.)
