Default Narrow Decora Switch Plate

Does any know of a narrow Decora-style switch plate? I can find other
narrow plates, but none that work for a Decora switch. For example, I need
an RN1 or RN2 as shown on this graphic, but with a Decora opening.

Thanks.

Check at your local electric supply shop - the place where the electricians
go, not HD or Lowe's. I'm confident that Leviton makes a plate as you
describe:

I wish they did...but Leviton does not produce ANY narrow plates.

Thanks anyway. I will try a local electrical house.

Time to get out the coping saw and file, unless you have a milling
machine in the garage. Take a standard narrow switch plate and open it
up to the decora size. Probably only take 1/2 hr. while you're watching
TV.

good idea, but he'll also need a countersink for the screw holes.

(IIRC, there used to be "modular" type cover plates. By getting the
right combination of narrow plates; it was easy to snap them together
and make a configuration to match the receptacle/switch)

Good luck.
