Click links to order Extra Long Switchplate Screws or Standard Length Light Switch Plate Screws.

Please note aluminum finish variation: Some oversized plates are not available in brushed aluminum, so we have substituted satin aluminum where noted. All oversize plates have standard size openings and screw placements. Plain Oversized Switchplates are available in the drop down menus for each plain plate metal finish (ex. White Switch Plates) and here for Decorative Oversize Switch Plates.
Phone Jack Switchplates - Telephone Wall PlatesFor questions regarding telephone jacks, read our article Guide To Selecting Phone Jacks and Telephone Jack Wall Covers. Telephone Jack 1, 2 and 3 plates are 2-3/4" W x 4-1/2" H x 1/8" D with 9/16" W x 3/4" H rectangular modular phone jack openings. Screw holes are spaced 3-5/16" apart from center to center on Telephone Jack 1, 2 and 3 plates. These work with USOC, Category 3, 5E and 6 modular phone jacks. Sometimes, the telephone electrical fittings are attached to the plate itself and the jack opening is the shape of a rectangle with a small notch below. These types of plates can usually be replaced with our Telephone Jack 1, Telephone Jack 2 and Telephone Jack 3 plates by switching to the modular phone jacks. We carry the phone modular jacks, Ethernet jacks and cable jacks in white, ivory, gray and black here: Decorator Modular Phone Jacks and Cable Adapters. Click Phone Jack Installation Instructions for photos and instructions on how to install a modular jack, plus additional information and pictures on jacks that won't work with our plates. Plain Telephone Jack Switchplates are available in the drop down menus for each plain plate metal finish (ex. Black Switch Plates) and here for Decorative Telephone Jack Switch Plates. Also, our plates are raised 1/8" with a 3/16" bevel around the outside (flat surface area is 2-7/16" x 4-3/16") and may not be deep enough or wide enough to cover the telephone hardware you have underneath as some are designed larger. Please carefully check your dimensions before ordering and read our return policy, too. For more information on phone jacks, please read Guide To Selecting Telephone Jack Devices and Wall Phone Jack Plates .
Finishes and ColorsSwitchplates are all metal, come with matching screws and may be cleaned with dusting spray applied to a soft clean cloth. Nickel Silver, Copper and Brass decorative top plates are brushed and antiqued in the recessed areas of the design and have a baked lacquer finish. Polished Gold is a plated brass finish. All plates have non-tarnishing finishes. (Classic Polished Brass plates have a lacquer finish.) Matte Black, Gloss White and Semi-Gloss Ivory plates have an enamel paint finish. The color of the Ivory switch plates most closely matches these paint chips: Kelly Moore Barely Khaki #KM493-L, Glidden Pine White #F26 or Behr Hearts of Palm #3B-2-2. The brushed nickel silver decorative top plates very closely match the color and tone of stainless steel used in appliances and sinks. The satin stainless steel is close in color to the brushed nickel finish found on a lot of fixtures and hardware today. Brushed aluminum is whiter and more textured than satin stainless steel or polished chrome plates.

We sometimes have to backorder at item, but usually for not more than three weeks or so. We try our best, but out of stock situations do occur on very rare occasions. We will notify you first before shipping your order if one or more items is permanently unavailable so that you may make changes in your selections as necessary.
Plain switchplates may be returned or exchanged. Returns must be unused and in original condition. Installed switchplates are not eligible for return. Please note that decorative switchplates (ones with the design overlays - ex. Mission Style Switchplates) are custom made for you, so any configurations except for a single toggle plate would be considered a special order and therefore not returnable. (There are more than 10,000 possible plate combinations!) If you have doubts or questions about whether you will like a particular design or color combination, please order a single toggle plate first to inspect. However, we are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of the plates. Please read full Return Policy at end of every page. Enjoy!
