Short Duplex Electrical Outlet Cover Plate is Trimmed 1/4" on One Edge

Finally! A great solution for socket plugs in tight locations where cabinets, granite, or tile are squeezed right up against either the top or bottom of a 1-gang electrical wall box. Trimmed off by 1/4" on one end, these offset half short outlet covers are designed to align with one edge (top or bottom) of the electrical box. All four sides have neatly-finished beveled edges. Short receptacle cover faceplate may be rotated by 180 degrees to orient the trimmed edge against obstacles that are either above or below the electric box, for example, granite backsplashes or cabinetry.


  • American made trim plates
  • the center screw hole is 2.0" from one end and 2.5" from the other end; use these measurements to determine if the plate will fit
  • your outlet may be shifted slightly up/down to help the plate fit: check if it is pushed as far away from the obstruction to for maximum distance
  • Kyle Switch Plates exclusive design
  • metal wall plates
  • 2-3/4" W x 4-1/2" H x 5/32" D
  • 1 matching 1/2" screw

    Outlet covers

    I was horrified when I got granite counters in my 70 year old house. To coordinate with my existing wall and outlets was expensive. Found Kyle. The short bottom covers were perfect. Thank you.

    Half Short Outlet Cover Plate

    Just what I needed to allow for a new backsplash without moving the outlet receptacles. Worked out perfectly. Glad I was able to find these.

    Perfect fit

    The weird placement of a backsplash to socket meant a normal plate would not fit. Thought I would simply cut a normal plate, but it looked horrible. Found this option and it works perfectly! Looks great and fits well. Highly recommend this for those hard to fit spots.

    Short Plate

    When I first started my search for a plate cover I never thought I would actually find something that would go on top of a high backsplash and much to my amazement I ran across this website with exactly what I needed. It took awhile for it to arrive but was exactly the product to get the job done. Reg on one end and cut short on the other, worked perfect!

    Exactly what I needed

    Due to an issue with the space needed to attach an outlet plate to a wall in my laundry room, I decided to purchase this, and it worked wonderfully! It's constructed well, but most of all, it works, whereas a normally sized one would not have worked.
