I am not sure what I am asking for, so let me describe my situation.

I've replaced 2 regular switches with a single keypad switch. I have a new designer faceplate that is "double width" for lack of a better term (it completely covers the 2 gang switch, but the hole for the new switch is in the middle). I would like to mount it without having to do any drywall/spackle filler, so I am wondering if there is a simple adapter that I can screw into the gang box that will reposition the switch to be in the center of a 2 gang box.

I hope this makes sense... I'm sure this is much simpler than I'm describing it, I'm just not sure what to ask for!

Thanks!
