Custom Switch Plate Configurations


Years ago on a place I remodeled I had an unusual 4 gang switch/recpt. set up. Either Lowe's or HD had interchangeable slide together individual to make the configuration you needed. Now I need a duplex switch on each end and two regular switches in the middle to make the 4 gang plate. Anyone know if any place still make these or someplace I can get that configuration. Thanks GBY

Re: Custom Switch Plate Configurations


Those make up plates look like a POS IMO. Install 4 deco switches and use a 4 gang deco plate.
