: Ths to Harvestr, Doug, Bruce, Alan, et al for the help.

: I would suggest the following additions to the installation instructions:

: 1 There are 2 plugs. Attack the inner plug first. Attacking the outer is futile (I have proof)

: 2 After pulling out the inner plug use the 'tool' to pull the outer plug out (from the inside) to give yourself more manevuring room.

: 3 The "tool" I used is an allen wrench attached to the end of a Vice Grip - works GREAT - for pulling the 'thingy' back into place. Need a long allen wrench and / or a needle nosed Vice Grip for length.

I have a tool that consists of a icepick like awl at one end and a hook at the other end. You can get it at a hardware store. The hook worked perfectly.
