Hi, will your toggle switches work for South Africa, our electricity is 220-250 V?

I want to buy this switchplate:

To work with this toggle switch:
Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.

The toggle switch you posted is only 120 volts and not safe on your power of 230 volts.

They do however make one just like it in a 277 volt version for the US and it is rated higher in voltage and safe on 230 volts.

CLICK HERE to see the switch. Remember, the only thing that shows through the plate is the little toggle and the rest is not seen, so the blue is hidden by the plate.

for another source

The little toggles come in your choice of color when ordered from the first link, in white, ivory, brown, gray and red.

Any questions, let me know
