45amp Cooker Blank Plate - Can I Replace With Standard Chrome Blanking Plate?


Postby Rob Jenkins » Sun Mar 29, 2015 4:06 pm

Hi,

For some reason I have a 45amp cooker blank plate (it is deeper at the top than the bottom) in my dining room, it also has a single gang socket directley above it.

I would like to replace both white fittings for chrome.

I have had a good look round but all the 45amp blank fittings are only white.

Can I just fit a standard chrome blanking plate over it?

Many thanks for any help

Simply Build It

Clearly the wires need to go some where but likely a 30 amp connector will keep the wires safe so I see no reason you can't fit a blank.

Thanks for the reply.

All the internal wires are out of the way, I was hoping to use the central fixing screws to fit the chrome blank with. Obviously the white cover has off set screw holes.
