Cover stays on tight enough but it takes very little effort to simply bump it with your arm and it ends up on the floor. IN MY OPINION all you needed was a little 1 inch raised spot in the middle of the bottom edge of the cover to lift it off on the rare occasion you need to remove it.
Our problem is when we park our car the front door ends up near the box and we are constantly lightly bumping the cover getting out. Our previous WiFi device had a “door” which snapped shut and on the very very (very x 10) rare occasion we needed access we’d open it (it even had a lock). The need for such easy access on something you should only need to remove ONE TIME upon installation seems a bit “over thought.” If it was where I hide my stash of chocolate chip cookies from my wife I’d understand the need for quick access it but this is just an irrigation timer which other than wiring it up or unwiring it will NEVER need to be opened. I hope you sell replacement covers because I know I’ll need one sooner rather than later!
I’ll try to cancel my replacement order from Amazon because there is no sense if it is going to be the same. I really don’t want to have to relocate the box because I’d have to deal with rerouting the wires that are hidden in the wall.
Franz described it as a “fun magnetic faceplate” in his original reply to me. That I disagree with. Don’t need to have “fun” with an irrigation timer!
Thanks for your reply. Other than that bit of “over engineering” it seems so far to be a great device and replacement for my B-Hyve unit. Guess I’ll just have to use some clear tape on the sides to keep it secure.
