Article 999.99 -9 . Toggles on switches and all cover plates must be of the same variety. Exception 1 tan covers and ivory toggles may be mixed. Then from the Handbook[ which gives further info]. Installations of non-matching toggle switches and cover plates have been the cause of many explosions and vast fire damage to many facilities. All screws must also be correct paint shades Exception .1 Bathroom screws must be nylon or non-conductive and may not be required to color match. Automotive paints shall not be used to change colors by repaiinting. Exception 2 Stainless steel plates Exception 3 if the switch body is blue and going into a plastic box of matching blue color any color plate may be used.
Be careful .

"Explosions and vast fire damage" caused by using the wrong color cover plate? You're kidding, right?

Thanks DS
I picked that color box and switch because they match my tractors.

Does it say anything about all the cover screw slots must run in the same direction? Just a pet peeve of mine. :)

Thats funny I used to make all the screws verticle. Once a co-worker installed a plate on a multi-gang switch set-up and didn't do that and the building manager called the shop and said the other guy left the screws all messed up. The contractor didn't know what he was talking about.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I don't see why all electricians don't do that. It doesn't take any more work, and it looks a lot better when it is done.
