    Electrical Plate cover - with depth? - in Chinese?

    I presume the hole in the wall hardware stores have these electrical plate covers; I need one that is not flat, but has a bit of depth to it to accommodate an electrical connector.

    what is the name of these things in Chinese?

    What you are looking for is very rare, probably no proper Chinese name for it. Can you improvise with a similar shape metal plate or dome cover?
