    Mounting a Cable Pass-through box like this, with one box low enough to be out of sight and the other box behind the middle of the wall mounted TV to be out of sight, is a good way to hide the clutter of Power, HDMI, LAN and USB cables to make the wall mounted TV seem to float on air. The trick is to do it with minimum damage to the dry wall and flexibility to pass different cables between the upper and lower box when new technology and cable types require cable replacement over the years. A traditional home/office electrical outlet box is designed to clamp cables or wiring firmly which makes wiring upgrades difficult and beyond DYI. As you read other reviews of these Legrand - In Wall Cable Access Plates you'll see that this is not the perfect solution out-of-the-box (so to speak). The directions included are typical of today's shabby instruction books, which are made primarily to satisfy legal government warning requirements in six languages (DO NOT eat parts of this box because they MAY present a choking hazard and they WILL cause cancer if you eat them in California). There are two things you need to know before installing these Legrand - In Wall Cable Access Plates. First DO NOT make the hole in the wall as big as you would for a standard electrical outlet box. This Wall Cable Access plate does not mount INTO an electrical outlet box. It has its own dog-legs that grip the back of the dry wall, to clamp itself into place when you insert it and then tighten the top and bottom clamping screws. You can see from the picture I uploaded, that I initially ASSUMED it needed the same sized hole as a standard outlet box, so I traced the outline of a standard outlet box on the wall to make the hole-saw cut in the dry wall. If I had proceeded with making that large a hole, the Legrand - In Wall Cable Access Plates would have wobbled around loosely without side support. Instead, trace the hole to be the size of the actual Legrand - In Wall Cable Access Plate. In the uploaded picture, I left off the final trim plate that comes with the box to let you see the size of the opening in the wall. When the included trim plate is installed, the total instalation looks much nicer. Secondly, to make the passing of new cables between the upper and lower box possible, TRIM THE EXCESS MATERIAL off of the Legrand - In Wall Cable Access Plate. Best Buy only allows a total of two pictures with each review, so I hope you can see what needed trimming from the boxes, by looking at the single before-and-after picture of the trimmed parts. I know the makers of this box designed it so cables could not fall in from the top box, to the area inside the wall, if the cables were not connected to the TV. However, all of this extra flange material makes installation of the new cables for the first time too difficult, to make the extra material worth it. All this being said, this kind of modification I'm describing is only an option for the Do It Yourself Home Owner. From inside the wall, it looks pretty rough when you trim it like this. Someone paying a professional installer would not be happy if they saw it. Professional installers or renters would have to go with a much more expensive and hard to install set of boxes. My method described is to make the cheaper alternative work. I dropped one review Star because of the typical lousy instruction manual and the trimming necessary to get the box to work the way I wanted it to. However, once I got everything in place, I am perfectly happy with the look and performance.

    Warning..I love this item, BUT I WILL NOT SHOP AT BEST BUY EVER AGAIN. I had purchased other items, I had bought prior I had receipt and returned within time frame. At the time of return of previously purchased items from Best Buy. I returned a total of 3 items. At which the third item and all I had a receipt I was warned I couldn't return any more items. As I returned my third item I was told by Best Buy I couldn't return any products purchased even if I had receipt and within time frame for 365 days. Evidently, I returned too many things with my receipt and within time frame. This isn't written on the receipts, but there is a posting on the door that they can refuse returns at anytime. This store policy is absurd!

    Look Great, but Hard to Install

    The way the backing to these plates are designed, means the piece that grabs the wall can break off easily. If (when) that happens, you have to carefully thread the screw in both pieces and then install. From there, it took a couple of tries to get the backing to "grab" the drywall backing to tighten the place. After install, the plates look great and work well, however. For the price and ease of use, I'd probably recommend and/or purchase again.

    Good for AV cables NOT for AC

    This product is great if all you need to run up the wall is the HDMI cable(s) and/or audio cables. I needed to run the power cable up the wall as well and the 3 Prong AC plug would not fit through the bracket the mount plate attaches to so had to jimmy rig it and cut a notch to get it to fit. I had to remove the bristles that hide the hole because the metal bar they are attached to would not allow the AC plug to fit through so it sort of makes the whole point moot.

    The Best Buy sales associate/manager told me they could install this unit but when the techs came out, they said it couldn't do what I wanted it to. It only goes straight up and down. Good news is they set my system up in a way that I can live without it with very minimal wires showing. It actually turned out to be fine without it.

      Hi There! Sorry this item couldn't do what you wanted. Because most walls have studs that run vertical, it would be a very rare situation that this item would be able to work along a horizontal plane. Hope this clarifies things.

    Clean way for running cables

    I bought this for running CAT6 cables for a security system. It was easier to just run the cables through the wall opening rather than install plugs and this makes it look neat. I think the method of securing it to the wall could be better though. You just have to be careful when attaching since it wouldn’t take much pressure to break it.

    A must for retro wall mount TVs

    How many people have a house 5 yrs or newer and had the option for a low-volt conduit/brush plates for a wall mounted TV? Not many. These Legrand brush plates are a perfect solution for a retro fit. Same brand that my low volt guys install in new construction. Solid construction and a sleek look. I put three sets of three in my house and would buy again when helping friends with their wall mount TVs.

    So this product is reflecting the picture and description. It is actually an in-wall mount. It has secure clips that attach to the drywall and then you screw the plate over it. Pros: easy cut and fit. Cons: HDMI with added knot will not fit through back Recommended for coaxial, ethernet, and speaker wire
