Rated 1 out of 5Â by Lockon Poor design - no way to make all parts flush.
I wish I would have read the reviews before purchasing - now i have to go back and return it. Like others have written, this plate is very flimsy - It has one huge design flaw - unlike Claro screwless plates from Lutron, this plate offers *no way* to pull the decora switch (a blank in my case) flush with the face of the plate. The way in which the Lutron plate works is that you first attach the switch to the wall box using the long screws just like you do any other type of switch. Then you use the inner part of the Lutron plate and two more screws to pull the switch tight with the inner plate. Next you tighter or lossen the wall box screws while checking the outer finish plate to see if it sits flush on the wall. The result - a perfect looking switch (or blank plate) and plate perfectly flush with the wall! The Leviton plate offers no way to keep the inner plate and the switch tight to each other which is critical for a flush finish.
Fortunately Home Depot does carry Lutron, but you have to look in the Lutron display to find the 1 gang screwless plate (plus they they DON'T list it as "screwless" and, oddly, they omit the maker "Lutron" only from the 1 gang plate which resulted in me getting this worthless plate because I couldn't find the Lutron plate on the HD website during my first search).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JeannineS1 Looks great!
I chose the screwless wallplates because I'm updating my kitchen to give it a more modern look. At first, I was a little hesitant when I took it out of the package, because the plastic piece felt flimsy. To my surprise, I ended up taking the wallplate on/off the wall several times (it was my first time replacing an outlet, so I had to fix a few mistakes). It held up perfectly and didn't crack or bend! I guess the wallplate was stronger than I thought. I'm very happy with the final product and plan to continue installing these wallplates throughout the house.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Matt sub-par - poor quality
These covers are a piece of junk. The piece of plastic that connects to the outlet box is really thin and shifts very easily. The cover basically snaps into place but if your wall is not even you will see gaps. Spring for the extra .40 cents and get better quality.

These screwless wallplates look great with nice clean lines and are easily wiped clean. They look great with the decora flat switches and outlets. I am replacing all of the switches and outlets in my home with these, one room at a time.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Aj123 Looks great, but has its flaws
Unless the dry walls and the switches are properly aligned you will see unwanted gaps, since the plastic is not exactly sturdy. It drives someone like me, who wants everything to look perfect, crazy! And oddly enough, home depot doesnt carry 2+ gang wall plates, and I had to order it through amazon. So if you are replacing all the wall plates, and have 3-4 gang ones, watch out.
