The attachment mechanism is a sliding latch panel that is spring loaded across the back. It does not have ears or screws or any of the other common attachment methods. To install it you compress the sliding panel and insert the other end end into the hole, then release the pressure on the locking panel. Removing it requires sliding it in the proper direction or inserting a thin putty knife ... there are no clues if you're not familiar with the design or don't know which way the installation is oriented in the wall. Probing with a very thin putty knife is probably going to be necessary. That's the price of a clean look.
When painted to match the wall color this is a VERY discreet cover.
BUT there are drawbacks. The first is noted above, namely that it's hard to figure out how to remove this guy if you didn't install it... there are NO external clues.
Secondly, to compress the spring on the back will require a putty knife or sliding the whole panel...... you're probably going to scrape the surrounding paint.
Thirdly, the rear locking panel slides in two channels; the panel can bind in these channels defeating the spring. The attached photo shows it binding against a fully-compressed spring in a channel that seems clean. The only solution seems to be to lubricate the channel... but what do you use to lubricate plastic sliding in plastic channels? Vaseline? Oil? Vegetable oil? Water based lubricant? They all have a downside and the dust that's liable to accumulate on the back of this panel is going to mix with lubricants and make a worse mess.
I have no good suggestion.
So very good-looking flush-fitting panel that will cover a large hole, but kind of a PITA latch.
When this arrived, I opened the box, took it upstairs, looked at the back and popped it in. No instructions required! I placed the two "feet" in the bottom of the hole, pressed down on the top foot that is attached to a springlike mechanism, pressed it close to the wall and let go. It looks like it was custom made. No more visible hole and it is easily removed in case we need to access he plumbing again!
I looked at other options on Lowes.com and such but they all included doors and cost upwards of $50. This was just under $20 and is more than adequate. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! What a great find!
Wow. This is ingenious!! You simply push the one tab inside the larger cover inward to fit the hole, push it into the hole, and it will spring the tab back into place to lock it in. The material is thin, but textured. You can easily paint it to match, or leave it white. It just doesn't get simpler than this!!
