Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RWTO Simple uncluttered look, easy to clean
Previous tenants in my apartment had painted over the light switches numerous times, leaving a lumpy, difficult-to-clean mess.
To remove the old painted-over switch plate I had to cut through the crusted on paint which glued the plate to the wall. This left an unsightly ragged edge.
This midway size wallplate is slightly larger than the standard wallplate that used to be there, so it covers up the ragged edge and saves me having to sand and paint the wall. The smooth surface is easy to clean.
As others have mentioned, this wall plate does flex slightly when screwed to the wall, but I think it is not noticeable unless you're really scrutinizing it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Nice Cover
Bought our first home which had old worn out switches, and painted over covers everywhere. Re-doing home room by room, and this was one of the first updates.
Replaces all the outlets, switches, and cover plates to white to compliment new paint. This cover is not the cheapest at HD, but was tough enough i could install with a drill (hate the time waste of screwing in by hand)
These are just a bit bigger than the ones i took off, which is fine by me because it covered some of the imperfections right around the hole and old cover. Gives a really nice, clean, NEW look!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Wow!! What a wallplate!
This is a fantastic wallplate!! It works so well. Every time I look at it, it is performing to the max! I just Love it! In fact I own about 100 of them in 3 homes. Believe it or not, they ALL work just as good. I even saw one, screwed into the wall, just sitting there, the other night at 2:30 AM, and it was STILL doing its job!!! What a great product. I can't beleive no one has reviewed one of these before. I am so proud to be the first!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Flimsy and made in CHINA.
I bought a few of these and they seem to flex too much on the wall and lose their shape, not a high quality product. Not to mention they're made in CHINA.
