Plastic electrical plates
What to do, you move in your new short sale home and Mr. Cross finds all the electrical plates broken. He left a message on my answering machine that he needed a small job to replace 12 electrical plates.
This post shows the nine steps on how to replace a broken electrical plate.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the entire picture, the plate was torn off, the center of the plate is missing and still in the middle of the electrical outlet.
Step 2: Remove the broken electrical plate, and remove the broken plate screw in the middle of the outlet.
Step 3: Above fig.2 shows the plate is broken in the middle.
Step 4: Fig.3 shows the new plate in its new packaging.
