Wall Plate

Installing a Wall Plate?

What's the best way to install a telephone wall plate? I know that I can run the phone line through the wall but should the wall plate simply be screwed into the drywall or should I buy a base (such as the kind that are used for light switches) to attach it to? It's a standard wall plate with two screws. Thank you.

You can attach the plate directly to the dry wall. You will need two appropriate size wood screws (the screws that came with the plate won't work). You don't need anchors at this time. If the screws ever pull out, you can add anchors then. Run your wire through the plate before attaching it to the wall.

I'm assuming you mean wall plate and not "wall jack."
