Default looking for black decora timer switch


Hi,

Can anyone point me to someone that makes a black decora timer switch
suitable for controlling a bathroom exhaust fan?

We've got a newish bathroom that the previous owners renovated, and it's
got black decora outlets. I'd like to convert the exhaust to a timer
switch, but its turning out to be *very* hard to find one in black.
I've spoken with a couple of local places, and they haven't been able to
find anything.

Thanks,

Chris

Local places - do you mean electrical supply companies, or stores like Home
Depot and Lowe's?

AFAIK, "Decora" is Leviton. A search of the Leviton site for "decora
black timer" finds no hits. "decora timer" leads to a number of
choices. A very quick perusal found ivory/almond/white, no black.
Sounds like paint-can time.

Intermatic makes them in White and Ivory (those are the ones I've seen
in Home Depot), and perhaps in Black as well.

A can of black spray enamel paint should fix you up.
