We used a drill with a bit and screw driver attachment. Also used a hammer to get the screw thingies secure up against the wall. Laughter helps as well. :)

Answer: 
Installing the Honeywell CG511 thermostat guard is relatively straight forward and requires few tools.
Typically, all you would need are a screwdriver, a drill with the appropriate sized bit so you can drill a hole for the wall anchors and a small level to ensure that the CG511 is mounted level.
If you have further installation questions, please contact the Honeywell Consumer Technical Support Line at Read More

Answer: 
Tools needed are a punch or screwdriver or whatever tool you choose that will allow you to make four holes around your thermostat that are slightly smaller than the Sheetrock anchors in the package, a Phillips screwdriver and a 6" bubble level. Eyeball the base of the lockbox or measure everything and place it precisely. (I prefer the precise method but that is just me). Place the frame and use a pen to Read More

Are all the keys the same?

This question is from Thermostat Guard
Asked by

June 24, 2013
I would like to purchase this to keep my non-utility-paying roommates from changing my settings. Are the keys/locks unique, or, can they simply buy another identical Honeywell thermostat guard cover and use that key to open mine? (Yes, sadly they would try that)

Answer: 
The Honeywell CG510, CG511 and CG512 family of thermostat guards all use the same key. If someone did buy another guard, just to have the key, they would be able to open the CG511 you are considering.
One option you may want to consider is looking in to a thermostat that allows you to lock out the keypad or touch screen.

Answer: 
Contact the manufacturer. There are probably not many different keys for the locks. They should be able to tell you how to identify covers that are keyed alike from descriptive information on the packaging.

The key and lock assembly used on the CG511 is the same for all of them. There would be no need to rekey them.

Answer: 
I would imagine you could.... I had an older cover on one of my thermostats and lost the key so when I bought this newer model the key worked on the older one and I believe it is at least 10 plus years older!!! Not sure if this helped at all.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't fit Honeywell wifi thermostats Be careful package states fits all Honeywell thermostats but it doesn't fit mine. Just finished returning it. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cost saving With more than 5 people living in one house, each person has a living comfort. With one person setting the thermostat and locking it is cost saving. June 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Too easy for people to open without the key. I would not recommend this product. What is the point if it can be opened without the key. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total junk Bought one for our church and the first day the kids lifted the lid off from the tabs that are way to short , and set it aside , Save your money and get a good one at a supply store. June 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stopping "I didn't do it!" My husband and I purchased this cover and it was installed in less than 5 minutes. We absolutely love it! Our house has an invisible guest named, "I didn't do it," that is in the habit of lowering the settings on our thermostat. We now have the gremlin stopped in it's tracks. We love the features on this model because we can easily change out to upgrade the thermostat itself. Our house has the bulky 80's model thermostat currently and it will eventually need upgrading. It wasn't easy to tell based on the picture if the unit would fit over ours. I am very pleased so far! April 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Protection Product The Honeywell Thermostat Gaurd is very easy to install and very strong. It protects my touch screen Honeywell thermostat from just anyone touching or damaging it. Great product. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Item is a MUST for ALL Homes! I purchased this Honeywell Thermostat Guard, to STOP other people who live in my house from changing MY Thermostat settings. Everytime I would set my thermostat where I wanted it, someone else would come along and change it. No one would admitt to it, and I got tired of paying a large gas & electric bill every month. No one else is helping me to pay my Gas & Electric bill, so they needed to keep their hands off, but they wouldn't. This Thermostat Guard LOCKS over my thermostat, and now NO ONE else can change my settings. It is made of a strong clear plastic so I can easily see what my thermostat is set at. It was very, very easy to install, I was able to do it in just five minutes. It has a really strong lock, and it comes with 2 keys. I don't know what else I can say about this item except that it does exactly what I wanted it to, and the cost was reasonable. December 4, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beware of size Be aware that the size given are exterior only - there is an interior lip that takes an inch or so away from the size of the thermostat you are trying to cover. Yeah, seems logical but wish it were more clear. Since the store does not stock it you cant field verify before purchase either. February 11, 2016
