    Was replacing my 10 year old LG 42" Plasma TV in my bedroom with a new 48" Insignia LED TV. The previous installers had cut 2 1/2" holes in my wall to route the many A/V cables (pre-HDMI). I was only needing Power and (2) HDMI cables for my new LED TV. However, my old LG had an extra long power cable to go directly to my A/V Surge Protector. The Insignia did not. I needed to get power up behind my new TV. After much research, I decided on the Legrand In-Wall TV Power Cable Strap Kit. And, I decided to install it myself. A stud finder showed that the existing holes were between studs. So, I centered my cutting outlines on the existing holes to consume them and leave behind a clean look. The use of the instruction card as the cutting outline for the large upper recessed box worked great. However, I almost made a BIG mistake when tracing the cuttling outline for the lower receptacle. My first trace was of the outline of the receptacle mount. But, that is the outside line of the mounting flange. Wrong! I realized that I had to trace the notches on all four sides then use my level to extend the lines horizontally and vertically to create my cutting outline box. With the correct cutting outline boxes, cutting the wall went smoothly using a hand drywall saw. But, another complication. There was a plumbing PVC tube running horizontally in the wall about 4" above my lower receptacle. There was room to push A/V cables past it but not for the large power outlet connector that dangles beneath the upper box and mounts to the lower receptacle. I had to take apart the outlet receptacle in the upper box, disconnecting the power cable that attached to it. I taped the wire ends together then passed it up behind the wall from the lower receptacle cutout to the upper wall cutout. I then re-attached the power cable to the upper receptacle outlet. My final 'MaGyver' moment was having to disassemble two wire hangers, join them together then use them to pull my (2) HDMI cables from the top cutout through the bottom. With my cables now passed through, I routed them through the cable openings in the top and bottom receptacles before mounting the receptacles and faceplates above and below. FYI, there are two types of screws to use with the lower receptacle. Use the smaller head screws to attach the power cable connector to the back of the lower receptacle. Use the larger head screws for the faceplate. Total time to install, including two 30 min breaks, was about 4 hours. But, now that I know what to do, I could probably do it in half the time. And, if there are no obstructions in the wall to impede cables and connectors from passing from top to bottom, I could see how one could complete it in an hour. No real pictures provided. End product looks just like what's on the box, except my top box is between my existing TV wall mount. It works great and I'm very happy with the selection of this product and end result.

    Easy install but you gotta cut holes in the wall

    I mounted a TV on the wall in our bedroom and needed to find some way to hide the cords going to the power and external cable box (HDMI cable connection.) A lot of people cut holes in their wall and run the power cord inside the wall, put a plate on it and call it good. Unfortunately, it's a violation of electrical code to run a standard power cord inside a wall. If there were a fire, there might be issues with your insurance company. It's not worth the risk. I happened to see this product online and as it happened, my nearest store even had one as an open box. After confirming mine had all the parts, I bought it. These boxes do not require an electrician for the installation. They meet code and even provide documentation that references compliance. Basically, they are an extension cord that can legally be placed inside the wall because of the type of wiring and housings provided in the kit. There are two power outlets and an opening for HDMI and other cables behind the TV. Use the supplied template to mark where you want the box behind the TV. It does create a large hole in the wall, so I'd recommend using a stud sensor to determine there are no obstructions inside the wall between the box on top and the box installed at the bottom. The bottom box has a male connector like the plug end of an extension cord. It comes with an extension cord that plugs into the lower box and the other end has a standard plug you connect to a nearby outlet. The area above the plug on the lower box has a blank covering, but if you leave off that covering, there is an opening for your HDMI cable or other low voltage connection to the TV to be routed to any external devices. The one negative I would give it is that if you have a lot of low voltage cabling to run, the opening is pretty small. You may need to install an additional low voltage plate next to this one. For me, this was not an issue, though it would have been an issue for the TV I'd already mounted in our living room. For that one, I didn't have to run electrical as there was already power wired behind the TV. I only had to purchase a set of low voltage cabling plates that provided room for more cables.

    This is exactly what I needed when I mounted my TV on the wall. I really didnt want to have to worry about running electricity up to behind the TV and also run the cables behind the wall as well. This did both in one step. In addition, it lets you plug the bottom outlet into an existing surge protector which alleviates any need to hide one behind the TV or not have one at all. If you can work a stud finder, poke saw, screw driver, you can install this. Just be sure you know what is behind the wall, I needed to avoid a refrigerator water line and outlet which was on the other side of the wall where my kitchen was. I avoided them as expected, but found that I had to drill 1.5" pilot holes through a support between the studs in order to fish the cables through. Plan 6 times, measure 2 times, cut once.

    After getting over the anxiety of cutting a large hole in the wall, the installation was simple and the results were professional looking. I think it's the best alternative to having an electrician install a recessed power outlet behind the TV. I had to use a fish tape to get the wires down through the insulated wall, but if you're installing on an inside uninsulated wall it should be very easy. The port in the lower cover isn't very big but I only needed to run one coax cable so it was fine. The maximum distance between the top and bottom boxes is only about 5 feet. The kit works well and the quality is good but the cost seems high considering how simple it is. I would use this product again if needed.

    I purchased this kit to make my TV mounting installation look professional. The kit was easy to use and only needed a few basic tools to install it. I would recommend a level, a screwdriver, a drywall saw and a stud finder. I decided I didn't want to pay $500-$600 for a professional installation and I was confident that I could do it myself. I would recommend this kit. Included a picture, keep in mind you might need to do minor touch up to your wall after you are finished.

    The challenge of concealing wires and providing a power source for my dual flat panel monitor installation was solved with this product. Set up was quick, easy and all the guesswork was eliminated with the high quality and attractive materials. I'm probably most satisfied with the solution this in-wall system provides for a non electrician to safely route power supply wiring to exactly the spot needed keeping exposed wires to a minimum. More outlets (this kit has only two) would have been helpful, but in my situation, USB connections on the TV itself were used to power some of the accessory items and external sound bar installed as well.

    I have an older home with limited electric outlets. This device allows me to have my TV hanging on the wall that is without an electric outlet. Having this device means that I have neither an extension cord traveling up the wall or a plastic rod to hide that cord glued to the wall! There is also a coax fitting for my cable line on the bottom of the wall at outlet level so that I don't have that cable snaking up the wall for everyone to see either. This was not an inexpensive purchase, but it is just what I wanted so that I could avoid a look that would say "this whole thing is a sloppy & temporary job". My TV is now installed on the wall and has a neat and professional look.

    This is a great product. Saves electrician costs and more. Simple installation. Hides all of your wires and allows for easy installation of your favorite tv on a wall mount. Plug and wires are never exposed because they are hidden in the wall. All in all it took about 30 minutes to install, route the wires, and hang my television above my fire place. With a little pre prep of course. Wall mount installation and all. Bought additional to move other televisions and mount on walls in my different rooms. Great product, makes things a lot easier and looks like an original installation when home was built.

    Since I was having the Geek Squad mount the TV on the wall I went with a recommendation from the associate at the store for the in-wall power kit. I truly despise seeing the wires hang from the TV down to the cable box, Play Station etc. After watching the Geek squad install this product I quickly saw how easy it was to install and I'm planning on picking up another unit to self install in the bedroom. This product is basically an extension cord but gets the job done. I'm extremely satisfied with this product.

    I recently purchased one of these setups and had the Best Buy folks install it. It works wonderfully and left us with a very clean result. Our situation was especially challenging, in that we did not have power available anywhere on the wall where we wanted our new TV hung. Not only did this get us power, but we were able to draw it from the room on the backside of our wall, leaving us with a super-clean look around our TV and sound bar. Not a single wire is visible anywhere. This is a great solution for a really professionally finished look.

    I have a brand new home and I did not want to put my TV wire in the wall which is a fire code violation so I decided to purchase the in wall TV kit. I cannot believe how easy it was to install. My friends and family were amazed when I was able to install it by myself. I will be purchasing another one for my living room TV. ** I had the cable company to move the cable outlet up behind the TV** No wires NOW!!!

    I recently decided to put the Tv on the wall but was concerned with cords and power behind the wall. I found these kits after looking at several articles. You can't go wrong with this product. It looks very professional and clean. The 2 power ports are great for a TV and sound bar. Keep in mind, you do have to cut out a large area of sheet rock for this to fit and you have to have at least around 3.5 inches behind the sheet rock for the box to recess into the wall. I love this product!

    I bought this product to go along with a wall mount for a T.V. in my bedroom. Instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. It made for a really clean professional look. One nice thing about this kit depending on your skill level with electrical work is the following. You can choose to use the cord to plug the outlet into a nearby outlet for those of you without electrical knowledge OR you can wire off an exhisting outlet and have zero wires showing at all!

    Works exactly as described. The one thing to note right away to save everyone else from confusion. After I cut out the holes in the wall, I thought the flaps that hold it in place push against the sides of the opening, until I realized they go behind the drywal and as you continue to tighten it basically clamps the wall from the front and behind it. It seems silly looking back, but I was spending so much time trying to do it wrong.

    This power kit was installed by Geek Squad on drywall. The hole is close to the size of the box maybe about 2 inches less around. I run one HDMI cable (audioquest pearl 5M in wall rated) and a similar optical cable. I may have space for another cable but everything is plugged into my marantz receiver so I don't need to. I got this product because of the 2 power outlets. that way I could mount a soundbar in the future if I change my set up, or I may mount my apple TV behind the TV.

    Just as advertised. Good quality parts and easy to install! One minor point: the opening for HDMI cables is far more generous at the top outlet than at the bottom outlet. Not a big problem, just something to be aware of. I have two HDMI's attached to the TV, no problem but it is a little tighter at the lower outlet. This is due to the size of the "cup" on the lower outlet through which you have to run the cable.

    I would definitely get this again. There is an inset that lets the plugs sit into the wall so that there is no bump on the wall as there would be with regular outlets. Make sure you let your installer know that you have the product so they can schedule extra time for the work and give you a bill. I believe it should be about $50 for the install plus the part, which was between 90 and a 100 dollars. And don't forget a power surge protector to protect your TV and equipment.

    I had Best Buy come to my home & mount my TV and Soundbar. Kip is the gentleman who did the work. He was super professional, efficient, knowledgeable & a really nice person. I am so glad that I went that route—eliminating all the cords. So streamline & attractive. Highly recommend this & Best Buy is great!

    Easy way to hid wires without being an electrician

    Very easy to install and completely hides wires in wall down to level that is behind furniture. Just plugs into existing outlet, so no wiring necessary. Just make sure there are no cross studs to block the wires. If we had to go a foot lower, that would have been an issue. Probably would not work as easy on exterior walls due to insulation, but on an inside wall it was quick, easy and looks very professional when finished.

    Easy to install, worked perfectly for what I needed. Be careful though, with the instructions it shows you can install the two pieces X inches away from each other, and they show a picture of them being installed horizontally, so remember in order to do that you may cross a wall stud, and that will be very involved when it comes to running the wires. This would be true of any in wall wiring system though, so just a reminder.
