Light Switch Plate Blank


A while back I beleive MD had a link to light switch blanks. It was a little plastic piece that you could put into a light switch plate to cover up the rectegnalular hole if you removed the switch. Can anyone help me out and give me a link to them.

Thanks

You'll have to cut me a little slack. I use maybe 2 or 3 a year.

What's wrong with just leaving a dummy switch?

Because they magically work the neighbor's garage door.

Yup. I've looked on YouTube a few times for that video, but haven't come across it. That's a funny commercial.

Definitely use a switch blank and don't leave a switch installed that isn't connected. It's a safety hazard for the neighbors.
