That setup is physically impossible. How can a device be centered in a two-gang box???
I see it is a valid part number, but what is the application?

Maybe it is the size of a 2-gang. Like a tremendously oversized one gang plate?
Maybe a two gang box with a single gang stucco ring on it?That would center the screws.
But then again why would you need it so wide?:blink:

Customer has a 2-gange box and just one switch. Does not want a blank or dummy switch. So searching for alternatives...
If it is a normal two gang box,What are you going to screw the switch into if it is in the middle of the box?Not to mention what you will screw the plate into..

I guess if the switch was mounted to the plate in the middle then you could attach the plate to the box...:blink:
Devices are listed to be attached to a box for support and installation, not the cover.

I think they're going to have to live with either a blank on one side, or use the plate I listed.
