Whoever did the plumbing in my house here used double-gang electrical boxes with the backs cut out and blank cover plates to hide the cleanouts in the walls. Not a bad way to do it I guess, though low-volt rings would have been easier than cutting up junction boxes.

The old statement pay me now or pay me later but later will cost you much more.

Buy clean out plug without square sticking out and install it then go to HD or Ls and buy a square plastic access panel box (Various sizes) install that and paint to match wall.

FYI, you can get plastic covers that can be textured and painted to match the wall- becomes almost invisible
Thanks, this is what I'll do. If the screw is too long, I'll just get a shorter one or cut it shorter

Dead threat, just had to put my 2 cents in for ocd purposes.


What you want is a countersunk cleanout plug available in abs/pvc and other materials I cant remember. Also you want a cleanout plug plate which come in various shapes, sizes, colors, and different materials like plastic or metal. I'm 100% positive you figured something out by now in 4 years but I just had to post cause not one person said countersunk. BTW "TheEplumber", that was some great advice about the plate screw, with the countersunk/flush plugs you could totally screw that sucker all the way through the plug, Thanks again!
