Replacement faceplate for master socket

Go to solution

I have a standard NTE 2000 master socket but the faceplate is hanging loose from the wall as I had to connect a dangling ADSL filter direct to a socket behind the original faceplate. It works fine but looks very untidy and now grandchildren on the crawl! I want to purchase and fit a new face plate with two input sockets so I can connect the ASDL filter. Where can I purchase a new faceplate? I have searched google etc without success. Thank you.

For example: ADSL FacePlate Filter

 

You will no longer need to use a dangly filter as this faceplate is filtered.

Thank you for quick reply (greatly appreciated) but I will need to reconnect the wires and have no idea which numbers/colours  to use.

You mean the wires at the back of the faceplate? So, you must have some extension sockets?

 

You just connect the same 2 & 5 terminals as you have now. It's a straight forward replacement.

 

If you have an NTE-2000 it's already filtered & you needn't be using a dangly filter.

So, why don't you just screw it back on?

I need (unless I misunderstood the starting instructions)  to connect the filter direct to the test socket but the existing face plate covers it up!

 

Thank you

@peterwot the NTE 2000 has a filtered faceplate which means you don't need to use the filter you have connected.  Your phone connects to the socket on the right and the Hub connects to the one on the left.
