Install New Thermostat Mounting Plate
Next, you install the new mounting plate.
- Once the old mounting plate is removed, pull the old wired through the hole in the new mounting plate.
- Place the mounting plate on the wall so that the wires come through the hole in the wall and through a mounting plate hole without binding the wires.
- Using a torpedo level to level the mounting plate, mark two holes on the wall to fasten the mounting plate.
