Use this surface mount low voltage 1 GE switch cover unit to update your old GE RSS-1 switch base and original mini rocker switch. Even though it is bigger than the old switch and frame units, this replacement unit will still sit on the wall surface making it a good choice for cement walls or other spots where you cannot set a masonry box into the wall. The switch itself has two buttons to replicate the old rockers (push one side on and push the other off.
This set includes a wall plate cover with screws, one new GE light switch with wiring connectors, and an extender ring with screws. You will need to buy separate mounting anchors appropriate for your surface material if you cannot use the regular electrical screws included.
