Interesting - I hadn't seen this kind of replacement plate before, but 
it seems less well designed than the standard unit.

Some careful thought seems to have gone into the one of which I posted 
pictures earlier.  If you have extension wiring run from your NTE5 you 
don't even need to disconnect it - there's a slot in the new 
intermediate plate to let that slide in and then the original faceplate 
can be replaced.

Is there an advantage to the one which you're suggesting?


P.S.  I've found in the past that the best way to get one of the slot-in 
plates is to ply a friendly BT technician with tea and chocolate 
digestives (plain chocolate obviously).
