This is the size of the USA Standard Decora opening size which we have been making for years.
Recently some companies have made much larger Decora Switches, Rockers, Dimmers, and Duplex Decora Receptacles.
They force you into buying and using their plastic switch plate covers.
We can make the opening to fit these larger sizes, but there is an extra charge for these new sizes from Hubbell, Lutron, Leviton, and others.
So please check your measurements, and we need to know if you are using some of these larger devices before we start to manufacture your wooden switch plate covers

SCREWLESS SWITCH PLATES INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
See the installation video Here
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR SCREWLESS WALLPLATES, THERE WILL BE A WHITE WALL HOUSING THAT IS IN TWO SECTIONS, MARKED FACE THE WALL, AND FACE OUT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, AS THESE WHITE WALL HOUSINGS NEED TO BE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR THESE TO BE SNAPPED TOGETHER WITH THE WHITE SECOND PART OF THE WALL HOUSING THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE BACKS OF THE WOOD WALL PLATES.
TO GET THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE AS FAR TO THE FRONT OF THE FACE SIDE OF THE WOOD SWITCH PLATE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO SLIDE THE WHITE HALF OF THE WALL HOUSING INTO THE BACK OF THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE. HERE IS HOW THIS IS DONE.
1. FIRST TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE.
2. COMPLETELY REMOVE THE SCREW OR SCREWS THAT HOLD THE TOP PART OF THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE TO THE BOX IN THE WALL (THESE ARE USUALLY THE TOP SCREWS) AND SET THEM ASIDE.
3. NOW LOOSEN THE OTHER SCREW OR SCREWS, SLIDE THE WHITE WALL HOUSING TOP SECTION IN THE BACK OF THE AREA WHERE YOU TOOK OUT THE SCREW FROM THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE, AND PULL IT DOWN A BIT BEHIND THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE. NOW YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SLIDE THE BOTTOM PART OF THE WHITE WALL HOUSING PAST THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE. NOW PUSH THE WHITE WALL HOUSING IN THE BACK OF THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE BY PUSHING IT UP, SO THE WHITE HOUSING IS NOW THE IN BACK OF THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE. THE WHITE WALL HOUSING MAY NEED TO SLIDE LEFT OR RIGHT A LITTLE, TO LINE IT UP WITH THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE. THIS IS HOW THE FINISHED PRODUCT SHOULD LOOK.
OR BACKS OF WOOD
4. NOW THAT THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE IS IN FRONT OF THE WHITE WALL HOUSING, SCREW IN THE SCREW, OR SCREWS THAT WERE REMOVED IN STEP TWO, AND TIGHTEN THEM UP SO THE SCREW CAN NOW GO INTO THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE AND THROUGH THE WHITE WALL HOUSING, AND NOW INTO THE BOX IN THE WALL. THEN TIGHTEN ALL THE SCREWS. YOU ARE NOW READY TO SNAP ON THE WOOD SWITCH PLATE COVER TO THE HOUSING, WHICH IS NOW ATTACHED BEHIND THE ELECTRICAL DEVICE AND MOUNTED TO THE WALL.
