Q:Would it work to use screws instead to mount? I have learned unhappily that caulk and adhesive cannot be removed from drywall without damaging the drywall paper, should you later want to close permanently with a drywall patch.

        A:  No, not without cutting. Frame for door requires cutout of drywall

        by|Jul 19, 2020

          A:  Yes, it can be screwed into the wall

          by|Mar 6, 2021

            A:  No. The access panel has a lip that fits into the drywall.

            by|Apr 1, 2021

              A:  No. It has a 1/2 in flange to sit inside a hole in standard drywall.

                  A:  I use two flat-bladed screwdrivers in the slots provided to pry the door open.

                    A:  There are a few slits around the edges that you can pry open (like with a flat screwdriver).

                      A:  Slots around the edge for screwdriver.

                      A:  The panel is nice and near flush with the ceiling sheetrock. A flat blade screwdriver or putty knife is required to open it. 3/4 to 1" plastic putty knife works best.

                            The product met the need fully. I am very happy with the installation and would recommend it to others. The door hinge looked like it would not do well with much use, but the nature of the access door is for limited use anyway. Good value for the price!

                            Used this panel to replace the jacuzzi access panel in the exterior side wall of the bath. Old original metal door was rusted out and unuseable. This plastic panel should not rust or deteriorate in the moist exterior environment. Inexpensive and superior solution to the problem.

                            Good access panel with a few caveats. I had a leak in my garage ceiling. Since the source of the leak was from a number of pex pipes and their fittings, I decided that if a problem in this particular area were occur again, it would be easier to have direct access than to have to punch through the sheetrock again. The panel is not particularly heavy duty but serves its purpose. Be careful when you insert it in the wall or ceiling. In my case a engineered beam ran just above one edge of the panel and the bottom of the beam obstructed a portion of the rear plastic hinge and prevented it from fully opening. I ended up snipping the center tab on the hinge side of the door which enabled the door to mostly open. If you do your pricing research on this model panel, Home Depot had by far the best price, and by taking advantage of the free shipping to the store, kept the overall price down. This model is made to be caulked in place.
