The 1312 has wall mounting key holes on the underside. Fixing with sticky pads should work but not an ideal permanent solution but in your situation would have to suffice as I understand it.

I will ask Mrs Weaver what she prefers. She has a powerful electric screwdriver called Walter, and loves any excuse to use it. Walter saves her from all pain in her arthritic hands.

The only problem I foresee with the screw heads method is that of change in the future. If you change to different kit, then you might end up making a mess of the wall by having to make new screw holes in the plasterboard so it ends up a mess. I suppose one way around it would be to put up a mounting board and then screw screws into that, so that if spacings need to change then a fresh mounting board could be put up in place.

LOL Walter. Mounting board sounds the way to go if Mrs Weaver feels comfortable with that.  ;)

Mrs Weaver is giving me pain relief and making coffee, what a hero. She says she will go the velcro route.

What a good nurse you have. I also have MH probs and a physical disability but am reasonably mobile. I dont have a nurse though so self medicate.

I hadn't thought of sticky velcro pads sounds like the best solution in the circumstances.

I have CFS/ME and undiagnosed neuropathic pain for which I am taking a couple of neuro drugs and Fentanyl patches which have just gone up a lot in strength. More drugs for nausea, itching and dizziness to counter the other drugs.

Just now they have told me I had testicular cancer and then told me I havenít. I am anaemic for some reason. A new doctor is freaking out because my blood pressure is exceptionally high and he says that is the cause of some of the pain and feeling horrible.

This is more than a tad off-topic, belongs somewhere else, or even nowhere at all. But it might help some kitizens understand what I can do and what not and so explain my odd choices.

Burakkucat has pointed out to me that all I need to get rid of the SSFP is the telephony-only front part of an NTE5c, instead of the one meant for DSL. So I have bought one from eBay. Cannot get just the front part so I had to buy the whole thing, but they cost nothing anyway.

That plus the right cable, of course - one that terminates in a BT431 plug.

And now no domestic dismay due to ugliness of a frontless NTE5.
