This guide teaches you how to replace an electrical outlet cover. Most electrical outlets have a cover that can easily be replaced. Electrical outlet covers usually only have from one to four screws securing them to the electrical wall outlet. To remove the outlet cover, turn off the electricity to that particular outlet and simply remove the screws holding it to the wall, ceiling or floor, wherever it may be located. Then replace with your new electrical outlet cover and firmly screw on, being careful not to tighten too much as you can crack the new cover.
