Limits the range that this White-Rodgers thermostat temperature can be set to.

My wife, always cold, and my daughter, always hot, are at war...and I've been caught in the crossfire. I'm always finding the temperature set to 60 or 90 depending on who had the most recent fit of pique.

Enter my Replicator 2! Here I've made a collar, which limits the range the temperature can be changed to from 73 to 78 degrees, without blocking the controls or airflow through the unit.

You too can finally have peace! Just print this out and pop it onto your thermostat (if you have the same model), or make one of your own.

Wow! This is incredible! I have the exact same problem at my house, so if everyone is going to insist on treating the thermostat like an "on/off" switch, this could be a perfect solution!

Excellent solution! Well done.

But seriously, this is exactly the type of Thing home fabrication is best for. You can't go and buy one in a shop & its easy to customise to your specific needs. [preaching to the converted...]

Super glue with belt & braces?

 Lol.  Well, this design assumes that people are carelessly overcompensating when setting the temperature and won't just rip the collar off when restricted to a reasonable change.
