Easily Hide Unsightly Power Cords and Cables

Leave a comment

Do you have a flat screen TV hanging on your wall and do the cords and cables hang down the wall looking unattractive?  Best Buy has a Do-It-Yourself product that is easy to install that will hide those cords.  Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Wiremold® Power Kit has everything you need.  The Kit includes all parts needed and all you need to furnish is a pencil, tape measure and a Philips head screwdriver.  Best Buy has compensated me in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or I received the product/service at a reduced price or free.

My Family is always looking for ways to save money, so we do a lot of Do-It-Yourself projects whenever possible.  The Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Wiremold® Power Kit looks a bit confusing but is quite easy to install and comes with easy to follow instruction booklet that includes pictures.  I like those kinds of instructions because sometimes the wording can throw you off if you are not used to some of the lingo used by a construction worker.

There are basically 13 steps to properly install the Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Wiremold® Power Kit.  First you want to verify the television cord will plug into the top assembly which most standard plugs will fit.  If your television is already hanging on the wall you will need to take the TV down to measure and mark the center of each hole location where the power kit is to be installed.  The maximum distance between the holes is 5 feet so you don’t want to cut the holes in the wall any farther apart than that.  I am using pictures from the instruction booklet which shows a lot more detail than the pictures I took and it should make setting up easier for you.

Best Buy has a video that guides you through the installation of the Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Power Kit.  Watching the video makes the installation easier while using the instruction booklet and Best Buy has some great pointers plus if you don’t want to do the setting up yourself, Best Buy’s Geek Squad will come and install it for you.  That seems easy enough huh?

Included in your kit is a 3-inch hole saw that is easy to assemble simply by attaching the handle to the hole saw.  Drill a hole at each of the locations you marked not more than 5 ft. apart.

Next you want to assemble the sections of the fish tape using the connectors provided and the fish hook.

Now for the fun part, start at the bottom hole and insert the fish tape running it up the wall to the next hole.  The fish tape is flexible enough to make the curves up the wall.

Once fish tape is positioned in the correct spot, hook the wire of the Power Harness and pull through the wall until the other end is exposed then attach the wires and cables you wish to hide and gently pull the fish tape out the bottom hole.  Each wire or cable will have to be done separately unless you are talented and can pull all wires and cords at the same time.

After you have fed all the cables and wires through the wall you want to attach the upper module into the wall using the 3 screws provided.  Make sure the upper module is snug, then snap the trim ring onto the upper module.

Next step is to attach the bottom module onto the wall.  Unsnap the trim ring and take out two screws holding the back cover onto the bottom module.  The trim ring covers the opening you drilled in the wall, giving you a nice clean finish.

Next you want to insert the power harness plug into the back of the power module and slip the cover back on using the two screws.

Route the cables through the bottom module and gasket.  Press the bottom module into the wall opening and tighten the three screws until snug.  Snap on the trim ring onto the bottom module covering the hole you made in the wall.

Included in the kit is a power cord which you will use to plug in the Legrand In Wall Tv Power Kit into a standard receptacle and into the bottom module.

The last thing you do is plug the television into the upper module and enjoy watching television and admire your work.

If your family is always looking for ways to save money and you do a lot of Do-It-Yourself projects you might want to check into getting the Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Wiremold® Power Kit to hide those unsightly wires and cables from your flat screen TV. The kit is quite easy to install and comes with an easy to follow instruction booklet that includes pictures.  Best Buy has the Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Wiremold® Power Kit which includes everything you need to install plus if you don’t want to do-it-yourself the Best Buy Geek Squad can install it for you.

The Legrand In Wall Cord and Cable Wiremold® Power Kit makes all the difference in the appearance of your room.  It gives a cleaner appearance without all those unsightly wires hanging around.   I like that idea because I like things very organized and neat, plus it is a safety factor as well not having all those wires and cables laying around.  The easy routing of TV power and HDMI cable in-wall does not require any electrical wiring making installation a piece of cake. Swing by Best Buy today and get yours to install this weekend before the games starts.
