Don't be fooled by our competitors' inexpensive zinc switchplates which are probably manufactured in China. They may look the same as far as the design is concerned, but that is where the similarity ends. It is common knowledge in manufacturing circles that Forged Brass like Switch Hits offers makes for a better quality item over lighter weight cast zinc as is commonly found in the big box stores.
Switch Hits has the opportunity to offer less expensive zinc switchplates but refuses to do so...the quality just isn't there. Put a zinc switchplate in one hand and our forged brass in your other hand and you will readily see and feel the difference. As one of our customers remarked who bought our product after buying the big box store brands, "you get what you pay for."
