Just a note about compatibility of wallports.

I had done some wiring using Leviton Quickport and needed to upgrade a wall plate and some connections.

I purchased Quickport connectors and this wall plate:
Icarus IHT-KEYWH6 6-Port Keystone-Style Modular Snap-in Wall Plate, White
Not to save the quarter in cost, but because I didn't find the Leviton part number a few weeks ago. I see it now.

Well don't purchase Icarus ports to use with Leviton connectors. They don't fit. In spite of what they say, they are not compatible without shaving with an exacto knife.

After messing around for 20 minutes, the plate does work, but the connectors don't fit flush and the plugs look messy. I don't really care, but if you are doing a lot of wiring, then you will...

Just a warning.
