Legrand Offers a Do-it-Yourself Way to Hide Wall-Mount TV Cords
The Wiremold® Flat Screen TV Cord and Cable Power Kit installs in half an hour with no electrician or hard wiring
WEST HARTFORD, Conn., January 8, 2014 – For many, the wall is the best place to locate a flat screen TV. But wall-mounting brings with it the challenge of providing power to the TV and dealing with low-voltage cables. Letting cords and cables dangle in full view is not an option; everything should be hidden from view. Legrand offers a do-it-yourself kit that allows for neat and easy installation in under 30 minutes with no electrician or hard-wiring involved.
The Wiremold® Flat Screen TV Cord and Cable Power Kit includes all parts and tools to power up the TV and hide all the cords and cables. There’s no hard-wiring a new wall outlet, no need to attach anything to a stud, and holes are tidy, small and fully covered by finish rings. This unique solution uses the cavity behind interior or exterior drywall and between the studs to conceal wiring. Grommets plus a power harness and power cord form a plug-to-plug power connection. They also guide low-voltage cables into and out of the wall cavity.
As this video demonstrates, do-it-yourself installation is remarkably simple. Use the enclosed hole saw to make two holes – one behind the TV and the other near the baseboard. The TV plugs into the top grommet, which connects to the power harness which, in turn, connects to the lower grommet. The enclosed power cord completes the connection to a nearby wall outlet. Low-voltage cables feed through the top grommet and exit at the bottom. The kit even includes fish tape to make cable pulling quick and easy. Finish rings complete the installation with a neat, professional look.
Don’t need to provide power, but still want to hide cables? Legrand also has a Wall Grommet Kit just for low-voltage cables.
Available at Best Buy, The Home Depot, and Menards, the suggested retail price for the Flat Screen TV Cord and Cable Power Kit is $79.99 and $24.99 for the Wall Grommet Kit.
