Convert wall switch from 4 Gang to 3 Gang

Is there a way to convert a 4 gang box to a 3 gang? In other words, something that will cover the right side of a four gang box so I can sheetrock over it and make it into a 3 gang? There would still be access to that part of the box from the side of the third gang similar to the shallow boxes they make. I just want extra room so it can be used as a junction box.

I know I can get a 3 gang rocker with one blank, but I would prefer to only have a 3 gang plate.

Thanks

I'm not aware of any plate that will do what you want.

I know the 4 gang plate with 1 blank isn't the most aesthetically pleasing but may be your only choice here.

If you don`t like the look of a blank, you could always just put a switch in but have nothing hooked up to it.
Or one of these guys, to make it half look like something is in there:

Thanks. I think if they don't make the cover for the gang box directly, the blank insert is the way to go.
