Comments about White-Rodgers WP70V Thermostat Wall Plate:
We purchased a house and it had the old round thermostat on the wall. We had that thermostat replaced with a new White-Rodgers digital thermostat, but the unpainted circle from the old thermostat stuck out about a half-inch on either side of the new one. Painting the wall didn't help much. So I ordered the wall plate to cover the part that showed from the old thermostat. I was a little concerned about disconnecting the wires of the new digital thermostat to install the wall plate. So, after I removed the front of the thermostat ( it just snaps off )and unscrewed the back of the thermostat and pulled it away from the wall a couple of inches, I was able to turn the wall plate diagonally and slip it over the back of the thermostat. Then I just lined it up with the thermostat back and screwed both onto the wall and put the front back on. No disconnecting wires and it looks great and covered the round circle of the old wall thermostat.
