Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for wall mounting a TV. Finally decided to mount my TV to the wall. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that I have plaster walls. This made installation a huge hassle. Because of this, I found the hole-saw that came with it useless for this, as it wasn't good enough to get through that much material - even when coupled with a hammer drill. I ended up using two additional hole-saws for my application, but that is not the fault of this kit. If I had drywall this would have been much more simple and could probably have used the included hand hole-saw. After getting past those issues, this kit was perfect for running in-wall power and hiding a few HDMI cables. I also painted the rings to match the color of the wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overall great concept, initially a pain to install I initially bought this product due to the “ease” of installation boasted on the packaging. Everything was going great until it came time to fish the power cord through the holes I cut. (At this point I was committed, so no going back.) The first difficult task I encountered was getting the supplied fish tape fed through the hole to line up and come out the other end. An exterior wall with insulation poses quite the obstacle. After several attempts I successfully retrieved the fish tape (I had to fit what I could of my hand through the hole to blindly feel for the fish tape) and inserted the power cord onto the hook of the fish tape. As I pulled the power cord through the hook became straightened and released the power cord. Now I had to retrieve a half fed power cord through one end and the damaged fish tape through the other. Attempt #2: I successfully fed the fish tape through, same issue as before, connected the power cord to the the hook, but this time I used twist ties to assist keeping the power cord and hook together. As I retrieved the fish tape I could feel the insulation pulling, tearing, and bunching up inside my wall. Just as the fish tape neared the exit hole the hook broke. Lucky for me the cord was there and I pulled the line through. Now I needed to pull my HDMI cords through, but thanks to the bunched up insulation in my wall I cannot get the fish tape fed from one hole to the other. Frustrated and 1.5 hours in on a .5 hour project I gave up. Time to re-engineer this concept and find a way to be able to watch TV with a successful wall mount sans exposed cables. Concept = 5 stars. Ease of installation = 1 star!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware This is pretty much a piece of crap. Instructions are not complete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Now that it’s done I love it, but a pain to instal I love that I was able to install myself and achieve the look I wanted. But this was a pain to install. They make it look easier than it is in the instructions and video. It took about 50 tries to get the wire fed from one hole to the other. Not an easy task when there is insulation in the wall. And one thing that wasn’t mentioned in the instructions, but I was reminded in installation, is that your outlets likely have horizontal wires that attach one to the other. I wasn’t real comfortable feeding the wires across that. I purchased two sets of these, but I’ll be taking my second set back as that room has paneling and these don’t install into paneling. It would be easy to include an adapter for paneling. It’s something you should think about doing.

Questions & Answers

What are the dimensions of this product? PVC piping was already installed in the wall for this, so want to make sure it would work. I need the diameter of the saw (or hole in the wall), the depth of the unit (or how far in it sticks into the wall).

Asked by: Stuey139
The hole saw diameter is 3". The depth is 2-3/4". Please follow the link below to see a dimensional drawing for the CMK70. https://legrand.webdamdb.com/directdownload.php?ti=55648072&tok=5GSuFACvLkMXYx8Ss6x7yQRR

I want to hang my TV on the wall above my gas fireplace insert. Can I use this kit or will the heat from the fireplace present an issue?

Asked by: Dave
Hi Dave, The use of the CMK70 above a fireplace while not forbidden, poses the following challenges and questions. For starters, our product is intended to be mounted between two vertical studs. A power cord is provided to connect the lower module into a standard wall mounted outlet. The provided cord must be utilized and not substituted. Is there an outlet available above the fireplace, if not how will the provided cord be routed to the nearest outlet? Second, Does the TV manufacturer approve of the installation of their product above the fireplace? Third, Does the Mounting Hardware manufacturer approve of their product being mounted above the fireplace? Ultimately, If the TV and Mounting Hardware manufacturer approve of the installation and our product is capable of being installed in compliance with our installation instructions, then I do not foresee any issues. As this is a unique installation, I would recommend consulting a professional installer.

Can a LG CX OLED plug work with this?

Asked by: James
The top grommet assembly accepts television plugs up to a maximum width of 1-1/8". If the plug is angled or rotated 90 degrees it will not fit the plug in the grommet. To resolve this, a short extension cord with straight blade plug can be used to plug into the grommet. The television plug can then plug into the female end of the extension cord.

Can you use this product in a plaster wall?

Asked by: nunz
Hello, This product is designed to be used in typically 2x4 framed wall construction with 1/2" thick drywall. It should work if the plaster isn't thicker than 1/2".

I have a plaster wall that is about an 1-3/8" thick. Can I use longer screws for the locking tabs? about 1" cement plaster, 3/8" gypsom board.

Asked by: northrm
Hello, The concern with using a longer is that screw the wing will be too far away from the housing, which includes a stop for the wing. When the wing gets too far away and doesn't hit the stop, there is no way to keep the wing from just rotating with the screw instead of traveling down the screw to fasten against the wall. Unfortunately this product wouldn't work for the type of wall construction you have.
