How to Hide TV Cords in Student Housing

WEST HARTFORD, Conn., Aug. 14, 2013 – It’s the time of year for college students to move into dorm rooms or student apartments.  This year, they can do more than try to ignore the tangle of cables running from their TV to the audio/video components located beneath the screen. And they can solve the problem without punching holes in the wall – something that’s frowned upon by landlords and housing managers.

Legrand now provides a simple solution to hide TV cords and cables. The Wiremold® Flat Screen TV Cord Cover Kit is a convenient alternative to fishing cables in the wall.  It’s designed to hide cables beneath a wall-mounted TV in a low-profile channel that provides ample room for all associated cables. As this video shows, it’s easy to install and customize.  Both the base and cover can be easily cut to length and can be painted to match any wall.  Need to add a component cable? No problem. Snap off the cover, add the cables, and snap the cover back on. 

The Flat Screen TV Cord Cover Kit contains a pre-drilled base and snap-on cover plus wall anchors and screws.  Available at The Home Depot, Best Buy and other retailers, the suggested retail price is $23.99. Please visit the Legrand DIY Project Corner for more information on hiding TV cords and cables, and other do-it-yourself projects.
