Help! Do they make this in Black???
 
http://www.lowes.com/pd_31567-334-27...roduct_price|1
I already ordered and received our new faceplates assuming that they made this in all colors. Are there ANY manufacturers that make this in black? I can't seem to find any.
Thanks for your help.
Todd

You might be able to order from home depot or lowes website (I think I have seen switches in different colors on the websites). If not, then you could go to House of Antique Hardware or Van Dykes. Both are restoration hardware suppliers and have websites. They carry all kinds if things, including colored switches and outlets (and not just antique, but also modern). They are a little high, but worth it if you need the part. Hope that helps.

Thanks Centex. I'll try some of the others. Don't see it on Lowe's or Home Depot.

Neither Cooper nor Leviton make that type of switch in black, closest you're going to get is brown.

I think the problem is that black is modern and the wide style toggles are modern. You want a modern color in an old fashioned style. If you're lucky enough to find it, you'll probably have a problem the next time you have to replace it.
