Q: Do the Cable Organizer Kits come with everything I need for the installation?
All Cable Organizer Kits are complete. Each kit includes all installation accessories-mounting brackets, junction boxes, screws, and plates. Please see each individual product page for a detailed list of what is included in each kit:
You will need a few household tools for the installation: make sure you have a sheetrock saw, screwdriver, and tape measure available.
Q: Can I run the TV power cord or an extension cord through the recessed portion of the plate(s)?
No. The NEC (National Electrical Code) does not allow power cords to be run behind walls, ceilings, or floors. Power cords need ventilation to prevent overheating, which could cause a fire.
Every Cable Organizer Kit comes with easy to follow instructions that, completed accurately, ensure a safe, code compliant installation.
Q: Do I need an electrician to install this kit, or can I do it myself?
Cable Organizer Kits are safe and easy to install. However, if you are not comfortable running wiring through walls or making connections from receptacle to wire, you may want to contact a professional, licensed electrician.
Please consult the product instruction sheets prior to purchasing to determine if you are comfortable with the installation process.
Q: What is the difference between having a regular electrical outlet behind my TV and installing the Cable Organizer Kit with Power Solution (Part #50-3323-WH-KIT)?
Both the Cable Organizer Kit with Power Solution and a regular electrical outlet will power your TV. However, by installing the Cable Organizer Kit, the TV can be connected to an external surge protector or power conditioner. This connection protects your TV (and your investment) from power surges.
Q: Can I install the Recessed Cable Plates included in my kit anywhere on the wall?
Just about. Make sure you install the Recessed Cable Plates between two studs. Use a studfinder if you are unsure. Reference the included instruction sheet for installation guidelines.
Q: What if I need more than the included Eight (8) feet of electrical wire in the Cable Organizer with Power Solution Kit?
Five (5) feet or less is the average height of a wall mounted flat panel, so eight (8) feet of electrical wire should be more than enough for most applications.
However, if your project calls for more than the included eight (8) feet, you can pick up electrical wire at your local hardware or home improvement retailer.
