It should be noted that after P&S acquired Slater, they began to realize they were pushing nothing but junk. P&S was commonly called "piece of sh**"
Their previous marketing battles with Slater seemed to be "who can make the worst, cheapest, junk"?
One day, they woke up and did something about it: They scrapped their junk lines and redesigned the entire line of wiring devices.
Now P&S stuff is better than most, even the builders' grade of devices. Many contractors prefer them over Leviton, GE, or Eagle/Cooper, whereas before they were avoided like the plague.
