A:AnswerHow can this be legal to install inside the wall? It is not directly connected (hardwired) to live power.
Does it meet code in most cities? YES.
Why is it different than running an extension cord through the wall? Extension cords are recommended for temporary power only as the jacket on the wire doesn't out-gas heat properly. Also the wiring conductors inside the extension cord are stranded and flexible and need to be solid strands for permanent power. The included in-wall wiring is terminated on both ends with a UL rating for in - wall use and plus into power "outside" of the wall and can be unplugged with zero risk of shock or fire.
A:AnswerI live in central Florida and The Geek Squad would not install the kit. I installed the two boxes and The Geek Squad ran the cables. My niece lives near Lady Lake, Fl. and her Geek Squad did the whole job, boxes and cables. Apparently you will have to ask your local Best Buy store what they will and won't do. If you are a handyman type, you would find it easy to do. The professional look it gives your TV is worth every penny.
A:AnswerYou'll have to feed the cable through the brush plate - its easiest to work from the top down and remove the bottom wall plate so you can see a little better into the wall cavity. There is also a video on the product page that may help as well.

A:AnswerIf you are a Totaltech member the installation is free. However, they could not install mine because my wall has a horizontal stud that blocks the wires from being pulled down the inside of the wall. They told me I needed to have a licensed electrician to do the installation.
A:AnswerYes, the kit allows for connecting power safely and according to code, in your wall. The power is ultimately supplied from your power outlet.
Considering there are spikes and lows in the electrical current, and the cost of your entertainment unit, it is well worth buying a surge protector.
In fact, most surge protector have insurance against damage to your equipment connected to the surge protector.
