all dependant on polarity of wiring...and direction wire enters rear of switch of course
Neither - there are now plates that hide the screws.
is it the torque wrench clicking ..or the switchplate cracking....this the thing to ponder upon in this matter...esp here...they are soooo brittle...make good saddles for acoustic guitars...
Obsessive thinking about how a screw should be, generally indicates a lack thereof.
ahhhyes...the one that goes invisible upon falling out....only to either rattle up the hoover...or miraculously reappear and stick in your bare foot
As far as screwing preference, why isn’t there an option for both vertical and horizontal?
Oh, right, that too!
unless its a spontaneous thing..i find it better to ask them as im doing it
Always the gentleman....
I try to stay away from disputes with neighbors. Limiting ourselves to "hi there" conversation gives us all room to be good neighbors to each other.
So maybe @Boil should be saying: “Howdy neighbor, was that good for you?”
Hmmm, the last thing I said to each of my three neighbors:
Your fence is a foot and a half onto my property.
The cover blew off your Jeep again so I tied it down.
Hey glad to see you survived the winter!
A head turner alright
like the lad from Castleton doing his driving test...(its sheep country)
"now sir...can you make a U turn?"
"turn??" he says "i can make their eyes pop out!!!"

The correct answer is which ever way your wife tells you to.
Would you dare argue???
As for the screws, vertical…though it matters less with that style of toggle than with the traditional style, which is more likely to lead to fingers or nails coming in contact with the screws.
Over all, neither is what I would do. I hate that style of toggle. I hate the style of the plates. I hate the color of the plates. And the plates look like cheap Home Despot crap. But your neighbor is closer.
Your layout is a mess. Three different types of thing on the same plate, and too crowded. One vertical toggle. Two horizontal toggles. One pair of receptacles, too close to the switches. It’s an ergonomically and aesthetically retarded setup, so the screws become close to the least of your worries.
give it him straight why dont you?
your right though...bloody peasants
As OCD as I am about nearly everything, I have found that I have to simply tighten the switch plate screws to the exact point where they are snug, and then walk away.
If I take the time to notice whether they line up or not, then I lose sleep at night.
Add this to the argument, the outlet in the top pic is upside down, needs to be rotated 180 deg. If something slides down the wall it hits the ground and not across the hot and neutral.
sing this at next barbecue
