Couldn't you have fudged the receptacle over a little so the plate would cover the hole?
That or get that plastic oversized plate that was posted.
The plate is the same size as the Razor receptacle. The razor receptacle was moved over more than I could with the device screws...

Doesn't matter, my cousin is a painter, AND there's a hand towel that hangs down over it.

It looks like this place was wired with the old BX that had the strip inside in. There's no ground wire to be seen inside the box.
Yeah my brother ran into this with him and his fiance's house... I have never seen it I don't do much rezzy. I did recommend he pull a wire in because there's conduit already there but that's just me

There must be some sort of bonding here, because I get a good voltage reading from hot to the box... Now how good that bond is, I don't know... I should have tested it with an incandescent light bulb.

It was good enough for me to fix the 3 way switches that were screwed up.

I changed out several of these in BC and the Yukon. Power limiting and ungrounded. However sometimes find that the transformer has been bypassed creating a dangerous situation.
