Despard toggle switches can be placed in any of the horizontal or vertical strap openings. Despard outlets with a mounting tab can be placed only in the end positions of the horizontal 3 hole straps (utilizing just the two outermost openings); Despard outlets with grounding wire can be used in the middle too.
Despard plates require a mounting strap to hold devices in place. The Horizontal Despard Mounting Strap has three holes situated horizontally for receptacles or switches. On these, switches flip from left to right. Veritcal Despard Mounting Straps have just one hole vertically oriented for switches only.

Plates have one or more 29/32" W x 11/16" H openings that are usually situated horizontally, but may be situated vertically on certain configurations. Screw holes are 3-7/8" apart center to center. All of our interchangeable switch plates come with standard 1/4" 6/32 screws.
