Life is better with this product
on August 9, 2010
I wanted to run my home theater cabling inside the walls and over the ceiling, which required some type of finished terminals for the speaker ends. This bracket was ideal to cut into the various locations in the ceiling and walls, then add a single gang plate for the jacks, thus allowing me with a short run from the speakers using banana plugs. There isn't much need for a single gang box since the entire installation is low voltage. Anyone possessing rudimentary carpentry skills should be able to do the job fairly readily. I recommend that you cut the holes just a little undersized, then trim to fit taking care to ensure that the tops and bottoms are parallel and square with the two sides of each bracket. It helps to be certain that the holes are well marked before making the cuts with a good drywall saw so as to avoid oddly shaped holes and out of plumb work. Of course, you can patch it up afterward, however that takes time. I might mention that I looked at mounting brackets at my local hardware/lumber mass merchandiser when I did the installation and found their solutions to be about 4 times the cost and inferior in quality and utility. (They just happen to have orange as one of their corporate colors.) It did take a few days for UPS ground to deliver, however it takes a while to do all the prep work and get the cable runs in place anyway, so you'll likely be just about ready for them when they arrive. Good product and the seller was responsive.
