I just moved into a new apartment. They said it was fine if I wanted to swap out their thermostat for my Nest. Installing the wires was fine, but the hole in the wall behind the thermostat is too large to attach the nest on the top and the bottom, so its currently only attached on the bottom.
I don’t really care about patching the hole, I was just hoping someone could give me some advice about what I could maybe attach to the inside of the hole that I could drill into? And how you might go about attaching something like that.
If you need pictures I can post them, but if its not possible/relatively easy I didn’t want to remove the nest
