    Q:can a 15amp Wall outlet be used with this bracket

    Answer This Question

    A:  No. This is for low voltage ethernet cable, phone cable, coaxial cable...

    by|Aug 13, 2022

      A:  No that would be a violation of code as you would have wire connections (risk of fire) not contained by drywall, metal or an approved plastic.

      by|Dec 1, 2022

        A:  I would not use it for that purpose. It leave hot wires exposed in the wall. This is primarily for non-electrical uses like for multimedia (i.e. coax, ethernet, hdmi, speakers connectors, etc.)

          Q:Is there some trick to screwing a wall plate to this bracket? I tried to pair this with https://www.homedepot.com/p/Commercial-Electric-White-1-Gang-1-Decorator-Rocker-1-Duplex-Wall-Plate-1-Pack-5001-WH/206428112, but the screws won't hold.

          A:  No trick, here. Mine went together easily. The screws just tapped into the plastic holes in the orange bracket.

          by|Feb 24, 2022

            A:  I had the same issue. A standard 6-32 screw will work as long as it's long enough. The first screws I tried wouldn't thread in, but I switched to 1/2" long screws and they worked fine.

            by|Jul 28, 2022

              A:  I don't think that box is designed for mounting a faceplate directly to it. You probably need something like this as well: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Commercial-Electric-1-Gang-Low-Voltage-Mounting-Bracket-5041/206415713

              by|Feb 24, 2022

                A:  That combo should work fine. I’ve done it many times. Make sure you’re lined up with both of the smaller holes toward the middle of the bracket. Also metal vs plastic, metal wins so if you used a screw gun and tried to tighten too much, the holes could have been stripped out.

                  A:  I used two of these to run HDMI cables from my TV to my entertainment cabinet with a pass thru plate on top of it

                  by|Sep 23, 2022

                    A:  Hey hi you doing.. On my case it work that way.. I use single an double gang next to my outlest. I basically build a wall on front of the existing one.. and the purpose of it was to hide the tv an all the electronics around it.. even to connect INSIDE THE WALL .. like the sound bar .. hdmi cable etc inside the wall.. But from a REGULAR CONSTRUCTION.. I cant says it's legal though.. but it works for me.. I hope help you as well

                    by|Feb 8, 2022

                      A:  yes

                      by|Feb 10, 2022

                        A:  Absolutely, this plate holder is perfect. It is designed for non-AC lines, either audio or video. You can use any plate you want from coax to phono plugs to open wire scoup (used behind a wall tv). 

                        by|Feb 8, 2022

                          A:  Yes. I used this for a Cat5 & HDMI cable. Hid all cords and they make connectors and plates to buy.

                            A:  Yes it can 

                            by|Feb 10, 2022

                              A:  This just provides a good anchoring system to screw your product to (instead of sheetrock). If your product screws to it you should be good. Example is a wall plate with hole in the center to pull wire or TV cables through.

                                Makes Low Voltage Work More Enjoyable
                                Previous home owner had a traditional single gang box installed with coaxial cable for internet running through it. When the time came to upgrade to fiber I decided to try a low voltage box after reading about its use on misc forums. Simple solution and effective -Opens up wall for greater visibility when working -Prevents tight turns and kinks in fragile fiber wire that you may get when working with typical electrical boxes. Wings hold the frame plenty secure to existing drywall.

                                  Easy to install and secure on lath and plaster
                                  I used this to add an ethernet outlet in a lath and plaster wall. The clamping wings had just enough room for the lath and plaster (though one could use different screws for even thicker walls). It feels secure for the ethernet jacks.

                                    Nice and simple for places without an existing outlet
                                    This is a nice simple product for a DYI project. I installed a wired home network and this came in handle for places that didn't previously have a outlet. Very simple to use.

                                      These wall plate sleeves have large open backs to accommodate multiple low-V cabling. Mounts to a variety of wallboard thickness with their incorporated adjustable clamps. My single gang box "keystone" project housed 3 HDMI, 1 CAT5e, 1 USB and a "F-connector". Tip: Patiently fish with added "pull-strings" taped up smooth in one group with masking-tape to avoid snags.

                                        We are doing a laminate floor in family room and had to do a channel in subfloor for a phone line, ethernet and some surround speakers into the wall that can't be rerouted from basement. I like these boxes over having to install full boxes which are only required for electrical. However on at least one of the ears of each box the screws are really hard to turn into the plastic and I have a good phillips screwdriver. Had to really push into them to keep from stripping the screw. I wish they were star drive that is all I use for my construction projects. You may wonder why ethernet, I also use it for the best speed on apple tv as our wireless network is weighed down with 10-12 devices and i like having options.

                                          Great for low voltage in-wall applications.
                                          Work Great for Cat5 installation. I use these when I run Cat5e cables in the walls to give a more finished look than surface mounting the wiring ducts. I made a template of the hole size, use my cordless jig saw to cut the hole and then drop the wire from the top stud. The hole big enough to easily reach with my hand and pull the cable through. Then just slide this fixture over the cable and secure. A night professional look for an RJ45 outlet.
