PROS: Nice Try!
CONS: Beware of 3 design/quality problems as follows:
1) The bottom brass threads in the wall plate, used to mount the cover on the wall plates damaged on all the wall plates. The top threaded inserts are fine. This was consistent on all 10 of these dual gang Wall Plates/Covers I ordered (20 wall plates in all). Unfortunately this required that these be repaired by running a 6-32 thread tap thru each, which cost me an hour to time to drive to the shop and pick up the tap, plus the time to do it, and I also broke two when I discovered the problem, because the brass insert spun out. There is no reason this should happen other than a lack of manufacturing quality control!
2) The screws that hold the cover plates on the wall plates are a tiny bit long, and when screwed in they push against the drywall causing the thin plastic wall plate to bend/warp away from the wall, and in the end the cover often does not sit flush against the wall, leaving a gap. In order to fix this either a) the screws need to be shorter, or b) the wall plate needs to be stronger so the screw drives into the drywall instead of warping the wall plate.
3) Also, the supplied screws that mount the wall plates to the electrical box are woods screws, however electrical boxes are 6-32. . . so I needed to purchase the proper 6-32 screws at a hardware store. Another problem that should not exist.
So instead of having my problem solved easily, I've now got to add a trip to buy longer 6-32 screws to my list of things to do. As much as I think Monoprice does a pretty good job, I'll stick to specialist companies from now on for my wall plating needs. I just don't have time for products that make more work for me.
PROS: Um, the keystone plate fits keystones properly, I guess.
CONS: Screw hole placement
PROS: Fits even large keystone connectors
It works as it should
I used these with official leviton oversized nylon wallplates and they fit perfectly. I also used my own screws since like people said the included ones are unsuitable for gang boxes.
Even though I bought double the amount of these I needed I still only paid a fraction of what Home Depot and other stores want for the exact same product. Glad I did as I broke 2 during installation! Once installed however they are solid, so factoring the end result with the cost is why I'm giving this the 4 stars.
Fits alternative wallplates (standard sizes)
CONS: Bad screws
PROS: just what I wanted, but..
CONS: the mounting holes to the already installed double AC in-wall box were a different configuration, farther apart up and down. Jury-rigged by using only the top holes.
This plate had different mounting hole spacing from the 2-Gang Recessed Low Voltage Cable Wall Plate also, which I had previously mounted.
PROS: Good price.
PROS: Generally nice design.
CONS: The long screws are incorrect thread Type and break when screwed into an electrical box. Major problem! No excuse for this.
PROS: Price was right
Serves the function
CONS: Very brittle plastic
Barely covers outlet box
Does not sit flush with wall
PROS: Has enough room for 4 ethernet ports, side by side or above/below.
After reading the reviews, I had an accurate picture of the crappy item I was receiving.
CONS: You need to buy your own 6 wall plate screws, either 1/2 inch or 1 inch, because as others have said, the screws that come with it are not long enough (they're only 1/4 inch). They stick out only a millimeter or two after passing the wall plate and the keystone insert.
The keystone insert does not sit completely sturdy in the wall plate, it has a minor degree of bend to it when touching it or plugging stuff in.
No idea why they included wood screws, complete waste, don't try to use them at all or you'll risk damaging the threads on the plate.
PROS: Cheap. Very inexpensive. Like others have stated, purchase a few extra in case one of them breaks (had not happened to me but could be an issue).
