Yes, it looks just the size of the alarm sensor hole in the link that user156+ posted below.

comment Safe way to close gaps around copper pipes?
I would first stuff the holes with pieces of fiberglass insulation (not mouse-proof, but close, and insulates!) then add the trim plate as shown above.

comment What could cause kerosene-like odor from a gas oven/range?
You won't smell the mercaptan while the burners are burning - it gets combusted.

comment What could cause kerosene-like odor from a gas oven/range?
Perhaps something spilled or fell under the range-top cover. Often those lift up for cleaning access. How old is the appliance? Is it new or old? Do you have any other gas appliances that emit this smell?

I'm interested in helping people that post questions, not creating the false impression of activity.

We gotta do something about the necro-threads. This is from May 9 (and answered same day).

comment Would wrapping a wood fence post in plastic help protect it?
This is what I like, or you can use class 2 base rock, but we have no clay out here.

I sure would hate to try to wrestle 5/8 up to a ceiling.

comment How can I remove grout and mortar from a drain?
The acid may produce gas, so be prepared for sprayback, and DONT RINSE WITH HOT WATER - use cold, then hot after the acid has been rinsed away. Still, I'd just take the drain apart and skip the chemicals.

HCl is not super dangerous, but you can easily eat a hole in your drain, burn yourself, or cosmetically mess up other stuff in your bathroom.

comment How do I adjust a door so it doesn't swing on its own?
Upvoted back to zero - This is not such a bad thing to try - it's quick, easy, and doesn't hurt anything.

Yep, that's the way to go. You might get a Fein Multi-master type tool to cut out the sheetrock. You can cut in tight spots quickly and easily with those (see above).
