screwless light switches


What are the light switches called where they are screwless for installing onto a wall without intalling onto a stud? I am trying to find them, and also, where are good places to find them?

Are you talking about boxes that attach on walls like this.

Never heard of them. You may be thinking about old constrution boxes.
Lowes and Home Depot have them.
