Nice! It even has the plaster ears!

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Nice! Looks like mine but with plaster ears. Though I don't think mine had plaster ears originally. With metal old-work boxes you are supposed to cut the plaster ears off so the switch doesn't stick out too far (and the plate therefore won't sit flush to the wall). The plaster ears are only for new-work. With the new plastic old-works boxes and soft plastic plates, I've found that I don't need to cut the plaster ears most of the time. When I remove the plaster ears I just cut them with my lineman pliers. Faster than wiggling them until the breakaway piece snaps.

As long as you don't remove any from vintage switches!

I find I usually have to remove the plaster ears when installing a switch in those cover plates designed for surface mounted boxes. Here's an example of one.

Yep you're supposed to remove the plaster ears for mulberry covers as well. Some people get lazy and just bend the ears back though lol.
