Sometimes, stuff happens. That’s when a larger switch plate comes in handy. It covers up that overly large gap between the drywall and the electrical box. If you happen to have a different wall covering, you may find that jumbo wall plates are even more useful. It is very time consuming to cut wood paneling, wainscot, tile and other wall coverings precisely enough to fit tight to the electrical box. And a bit of a miscalculation would otherwise mean that you wasted an expensive piece of tile or wood. Since time is money, you can afford to be just a little bit less precise without worrying that the wall plate won’t cover. It isn’t so overly large that it looks odd, and it may save you quite a bit of time and money.

This switch plate is for covering a single gang electrical box. Made of nylon (with captive matching screws) which means it won't crack if overtightened which frequently happens if the electrical box is not properly flushed with the wall surface. This particular plate is oversize referred to as "Jumbo" which means it is significantly larger than a standard size electrical box for hiding oversized cutouts for electrical boxes. Also available are similar plates in two other sizes, one called "Medium" which is slightly larger than a standard single gang electrical box (most commonly used), and of course "Standard" which is no bigger than necessary so that it will fit if there is limited space surrounding the switch area as might be caused by adjacent molding for example.

I was working on the drywall in my new house. I am not an expert at drywall and cut the openings for light and plug plates about 1/8th inch too big. I was able to get these oversize plates and they covered my mistakes without looking out of place. Unless you had this plate right next to a normal plate you would never notice the difference.
