Switch/Toggle Plate Filler


I have a three-gang/three-toggle switch plate but only 2 switches occupying the box. Is there a filler to put in the unused space out there somewhere?

Yes there is. They sell them at every electrical supply house.

What is the correct description, because they looked at me like I didn't know what I was talking about.

You named it. I call them filler pates, or blank inserts.
