The housing may be quickly and easily assembled in a clam-shell manner. The housing includes a pair of half-shells with each having a tongue for connecting to a face plate and a locking mechanism for connecting the half-shells together. The tongues are inserted into a pair of tongue-receiving fulcrum structures of the plate so that the half-shells are positioned in an open clam-shell arrangement. To complete the connection and the formation of the housing, the half-shells are rotated towards each other until the locking mechanism of one of the half-shells fastens to the locking mechanism of the other half-shell. Furthermore, the housing provides a wall-mounting mechanism for releasably attaching the housing to a wall, wherein that mechanism has two operative positions, including locking and release positions. In the locking position, the wall-mounting mechanism securely mounts the housing to the wall, and in the release position, the housing is unmounted and removable from the wall.
