Q:Is it true that you cannot use Decora Plus plates with these?
by|Jan 20, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  I wasn’t able to get normal or screw less to fit. The tabs are too bulky and the standard plate doesn’t fit over it.

      Q:Installed by licensed electrician; strange that the faceplate does not cover the switches. The backing for the switch is too big/bulky for the faceplate. See pic, the faceplate doesn't cover the switch on the top or bottom. Any others having this prob?

      Answer This Question

      A:  In the ad pic there is no face plate on the device. there should be no issue using a decora wall plate. For further assistance please call the tech line at 1-800-824-3005

      by|Sep 19, 2023

        A:  it should fit a normal decora faceplate. It could also be your electrical box is crooked or floating. It fit perfectly for all ours this includes both our homes. One is 60 years old and 20 years old. All the switches fit perfectly.

            Decora Edge 15 Amp Single Pole Switch – Modernized by Leviton
            Simplest and safest (for the worker to install) switch ever. Notably absent are tedious fishhook bends, handling a screwdriver throughout the process, seeking a firmer workbench than one’s palm. The new switch comes with novice level instructions that address its features including Lever Wiring (WAGO style clamping), identifying one’s conductors, preparing conductors, wallplate preparation, installing in single- and multi-gang boxes. Still present are silent and sure snap action, built-in strip gauge, grounding straps and captive screws. New are big plastic mounting tabs that make mounting straight and which are wide enough to align multiple devices (with an indexing tab that assured the cover plate slides right over), color-coded wire clamping levers (with audible flush closure), and test probe ports. This device will work with stranded wire. There are no conductive surfaces along either left or right edge. This switch is available in a 3-way version where the traveler wire clamp is color coded red. One can trim (snap away) the mounting tabs to accommodate standard or oversized scratchplates. Not only is this a timesaver, but it is also considerably foolproof.

            Push-Click-Done Quick-Connect switch is a winner!
            I was wondering when someone would come out with a Wagu-type product that was better than the stab-backs, although I've never had a problem with the stab-backs that so many electricians said were horrible. I did a remodel project and needed a couple of switches, one a 3-way and the other just a regular one. I stumbled upon these and ordered them out just to see if they really were that easy. Now I know what you're thinking...D, it's only a light switch (or outlet). True, but it literally took less than 30 seconds to get each of them wired up. It took longer to screw them into the box than it did to wire them. If you're just wanting to swap out regular switches for new ones like these, I highly recommend using them. I love the color-codedness of them. No way can you mess up now in cross-wiring. I'll definitely be using these in all of my remodel jobs. If you like the Wagu's you love these switches!

            Works just like a regular wall switch
            Simple installation, open levers, strip wires, insert wires, close levers, push switch into box. I am relieved that this switch can accept 12 or 14 gauge wire. Many like this cannot. I used a regular size cover plate so I had to break off the two plastic end pieces. ----- Nothing unusual here, just a normal wall switch. 15 amps limit on current. There are some that can handle 20 amps, not this one.

            Hands down the best switch design I have seen!
            Every once in a while a product comes along that so totally improves a design, that it becomes the go to product from now on. I'm here to tell you that this is one on those products. As someone who regularly replaces outlets and switches in homes, this new design has really been a time saver, and all around made my job simpler. The switch has side levers that when the wire is inserted into the back, you simply push the levers closed and it locks the wire in place. In turn, if you need to remove the switch, simply open the levers and the wire is released, for easy and quick replacement. This is a really big improvement over older designs out there. On the side of the switch is a simple gage to show you how much wire to strip before inserting. The all plastic casing makes things safer when installing in the outlet box, as wires will not short out with each other. The tabs on top and bottom are designed for larger cover plates, but are simple to remove for standard ones. Oh, and the notch in the side of the casing makes for perfect alignment in multi gang boxes. The included instructions were clear and simple to read and understand, and really any diy'er or homeowner that can do simple repairs can easily install this switch! They really thought of everything with this one, and it will be the only switches and outlets I buy from now on!

            So quiet, it didn’t awaken my wife!
            This, Leviton Decora Edge 15 Amp Single Pole Switch, White performs as a Leviton Decora product should! First, this switch is ultra quiet. I’ve installed a lot and the level of craftsmanship is noticed straight out the box. The connection levers are designed for those in a tight work box and for those that aren’t good at looping. It’s also a great visual for even a novice on which wires go where. The instructions are very clear and assisting those that may come into a little snag as well.

            Fantastic new push-click-done system
            I love this! This brand new design takes the most time consuming steps away - stripping and screwing the connection. Then, it replaces them with stripping and flipping the terminal connection. Done! The paddles are nice and wide, beefy enough so you don't have to be extra careful when working with gloves so not to break them. It's literally that easy. The connection is very strong, retention is phenomenal and tugging on 14 gauge wire with all my force couldn't pull the wire. The design of the closing brace is such that it digs deeper into the copper the more you pull. The contact surface area is wide enough to not focus hot spots. I couldn't really determine but contact surface seemed prepped with non-oxidizing plating. The construction of the switch is very good, there are plenty of indications on the body for wiring, as well as very visible strip gauge. The best part about it is that you can use this switch with stranded wires without the need to dip them in solder previously or something similar. Actually working with stranded will yield larger contact surface and ensure better grip on the connection. I really liked the alignment notch and groove that makes alignment so easy when you're installing more than one in a row. It is self grounding with thermoplastic body and max 15A rating. This switch has all the required certifications such as CSA 22.2 No 111, it is NOM ands UL certified and comes with a 2-year warranty.

            Easiest light switch installation ever!
            I’ve installed or replaced hundreds of light switches, attaching the wires via the screw terminals and “back stab” connections. Neither of those methods are particularly difficult, but the new Leviton “Edge” switch makes it super easy: just pop open the color-coded levers, slide the stripped wire into the hole, and snap the levers closed. The taper at the top of each hole is a nice touch. They hold the wires securely. And unlike back stab connections, they’re easier to disconnect should that be necessary. These switches would be particularly helpful if the wires in your junction box are short. . Cons? None really. The switches are somewhat bulky and may not fit in smaller or crowded junction boxes. See pic with the old-style switch next to the new one. But this is a common problem with most flat plate and dimmer switches. And the levers take a bit of finger strength to open - possibly a problem if you have long fingernails. Finally they’re a little more expensive than other switches. But if you’re a beginner, want ease-of-DIY, and value a secure connection, it’s a small price to pay. I could easily manage with the old style and save a few cents, but I’ll be using these from now on. Recommend! . Leviton Decora Edge 15 Amp Single Pole Switch, White, Model # R02-E5601-0SW

            Innovations=Fast, Safe, Secure Installation
            I am reviewing the single & 3-pole switches. I just ordered enough to do an entire floor after installing one of each. These save time with the snap feature and they eliminate any need to wrap the sides to prevent accidentally contact of a bare wire. The snap feature provides more than just point contact with the wires lessening the chance of heat buildup or accidental withdraw. The built-in strip gauge helps you remove the right amount of insulation to get full depth insertion without any bare wire showing. The test point next to the insertion point works well even if you have to move the wires a bit to insert your voltage tester. Having color-coded levers for line/load (black), travelers (red) and ground (green) helps novice DIY folks get wiring right the first time. Just make sure you follow the instructions and wiring goes quickly. Then there are the oversize tabs that stay in place for midway & jumbo wall plates that make for a sturdier installation. I did not get to try the interlocking, tongue & groove feature of the side bands of the switch, which make alignment on multi-gang installations easier. It's a lot of innovation for a product that has remained about the same for decades. I look forward to speedy rewiring of about 30 switches this coming week using the Edge (TM) devices. Wish the Edge features were available on dimmers as well but those usually come with lead wires installed.

            Increased Safety/Easier to install
            When I opened the box, I was looking for the two screws that the wires, from the electrical box, would screw on to. No screws but three holes in the back of the switch. You open the black tabs on the side and put the two wires inside the holes on the back of the switch. That is much safer and easier than putting the wires on the screws. The green tab is for grounding but not necessary if the box is grounded. I like the new design.

            Great improvement on standard switch
            Leviton has come up with a great innovation for switches in their Decora Edge line of products. I am all about easy installs, and this product delivers. Installing a Decora Edge switch or outlet is a breeze: just strip your wire, flip the lever open, push in the wire, and flip closed. The color coded levers make connections simple in any orientation as well. Definitely recommend this line of products for your next renovation or new-build.
