Removing and replacing the display frame with a new color

Step 1
Before proceeding, remove the Faceplate from the Base. Put one hand above it, and grab both sides with the other hand. Then, slide it up and off.
Step 2
Next, with two hands and your fingers on the lower edge of the frame, gently pull slightly down on the rear edge of the frame until the clips come loose, and the bottom edge of the frame releases from the display.Brilliant 510-00002 All In One Smart Home Control Two Switches Panel - Side View

Step 3
Pull forward. Once the lower edge comes loose, continue to rotate the bottom edge up until you can easily unclip the upper hooks from the top edge of the Faceplate.
To attach a new frame, clip the top clips onto the top edge of the Faceplate and then rotate it down until the frame is seated. To ensure the frame is properly clipped on, first squeeze the lower two corners and then squeeze the upper two corners. You can now reattach the Faceplate to the wall.

6+ replaceable color frame options, such as ivory, black, and silver, are available at http://www.brilliant.tech
