I came across something like this recently and have never seen anything like it:



The one I saw was from the 70's and in a bathroom, the top half controled the light, the bottom half for the fan. I think my old high school had some of these too. Has anyone seen these or know what they are called? Or know anything about them?

how are they being held in the box?. theres only two holes for the box screws, and each switch probably has two screws each.

You insert each device , switch / or receptacle into the mounting plate , then with a small screwdriver you pry the two indentations into the slots in the device .
That is what holds it into the mounting plate .
Then you mount it just like a normal switch or receptacle .

Some low voltage switches still come this way .
