I've never seen a white centered. P&S makes one that is 2-gang with the device on one side. SP1426W.

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:

Why do you need such an awkward plate?

Maybe there is an alternative to that particular plate for this application?

Customer has a 2-gange box and just one switch. Does not want a blank or dummy switch. So searching for alternatives...

That would not be a "2-gang" box then. That is a 4" sq with a mud ring.
True.. I just cant think why he would need this..Unless someone did a crappy job of cutting out the box and it didn't get fixed....

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..

The only way to get that type of cover in white is to custom order it, it is not cheap or quick but I have had to do it on more then one occassion.

Once again. What was the application?

HOW was a device mounted in the middle of a two gang box???
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.
