Trim plate 1 receptacle in a 2 gang box?


Hi all,
I am having a tough time finding the trim plate I need. I have a two gang box and I only have one decora style receptacle in it. I am looking for a standard trim plate that fits a 2 gang box and only takes on receptacle.

I have seen some plates like this for the heavy duty boxes with the two screws in the corners but nothing that fits a standard remodel box?

Anyone have a link?

Thanks much
Brian

Home Depot has modular plates, so you could use that. Do a keyword search for "Leviton sectional" and you should be able to find it.

Have you checked an electrical supply house? I bet they'd have some sort of plate that would allow you to mount a single device in the center of a 2-gang box. The modular plates would work, but the outlet would be off-centered.

Or put 2 receptacles in the box, you never can have too many.
