Product Description

Do you want to mount your TV above the fireplace or on the wall but the power/cable plugs make it impossible to mount flush?

It uses sturdy wing mounts that automatically flip into place to tighten to the wall. it can be used with walls up to 1-1/2-inch thick. There's no wobble once the box is installed.

This looks clean on the wall, hides my wires, and powers my television with little effort involved. The second outlet at the top is handy for powering a second device (ex. sound bar, Chromecast, etc.), while the two different options for the second gang plate (plastic chute vs. rubber slotted plate) gives options on how you want to manage your cables. The instructions included are weak, but I have included a step-by-step below. I hope it helps!

Instructions:

1) Plan and measure. After you start cutting sheet rock the ability to change your mind starts coming with costs, so double check your placement before you cut. If you are doing this at the same time as a television mount job, mount the TV first so you can see where to place the top box for zero or minimum visibility. Both boxes need to be between the same studs if you want to do your install without climbing in the attic to switch sections in your wall and run all that cable (don't do it).
Side note: This does not come with a template to use to draw on your wall pre-cut. Work around this by cutting one out of the box the kit came in. The recessed boxes aren't perfectly square so make sure you label the top of your template. I made mine by tracing the kit on the box, cutting it out, then cutting out the inside of the template to trace where I need to cut. Trace the inside of the template on the wall with a pencil and you are good to go.

2) Cut. This is step is self explanatory, but I would add that if you have insulation in your wall like I did you should try and find a shallow cutting tool for your sheet rock. It is easier to fish the wires through if you haven't cut the paper backing on your insulation.

The product itself is great. It works as a 2-gang box (2 receptacle), with one side intended for an electrical outlet, and the other for low voltage, such as coaxial or hdmi inputs. On the bottom of the electric side, there are pieces of plastic that bend out of the way when the wire comes in, but bite into the wire when it tries to go out, thus keeping the wire in place. On top, there is a scored circular punch-out, similar to metal work boxes. You can use this punch-out instead, or in addtion, to accomodate additional wiring going different directions. The former seems to be the intended first-use insert. The low voltage side has no back, so you'll either have to attach the wire to a nearby stud, or just be sure it is attached well to your receptacle, else risk losing it down into the wall. It is solidly built, has all the parts you need (except for the receptacles, of course), and can even be used as a new or old work box (old work box involves using the flaps to pull back against the drywall, while new work boxes are screwed directly into a stud before drywall is installed).

The installation was pretty straightforward. I already have walls in place, so I was instructed to cut a 5 1/4" X 6" hole in the drywall for the box to fit in. This leaves about 1/8" on all sides for a little wiggle room to both get the box all the way in there, and to make sure it's level. I used an electrical outlet and a combination coaxial/hdmi receptacle. For the outlet, the hot wire (usually black) goes to the gold screw, the neutral wire (usually white) goes to the silver screw, and the ground wire (usually a bare wire) goes on the green screw. The a/v receptacle I used simply involved plugging the male end of both cables into a double-ended female port of both designs.

Style Name: 2-Gang Flat Screen TV Bridge KitColor: White Verified Purchase
I have installed several flat screens and tried as many different ways of routing power and cables. When I saw this one I thought the pigtail 110 volt cord was a little silly, until I realized I could plug it into the surge protector and protect the tv. This is actually a great idea and does not require tampering with your homes wiring. The plastic housings are solid and I like that the outlet is recessed even deeper than other products. I rated 4 stars because of 2 things. First issue was the size of the plastic housing is on the large side, so I had to turn it sideways to fit it between the top and bottom z bars of my tv mounting bracket. You need a hole 5.125" wide by 5.75" tall. I had 5.5" clear between the top and bottom bars of my bracket. Secondly there was a defect in one of the housings that had a small hole. given more time I would have sent it back, but I did not realize it until the hole was cut and I was installing. Behind the tv nobody will see it. I will buy another kit when I remodel my family room, definitely recommend.

I did get this installed and it does look nice, but had a few issues:

1) Instructions were really weak. No pictures at all. Only text on a single page. Part list was not really there and there were pictures of multiple items that are not included. They should call out what is not in the box.
2) Does not include the romex that runs behind the wall. Luckily I had some around the house, but they really should call that out in the product description and in the instructions.
3) Snapped off a screw when trying to attach the electrical outlet to the box. I'd highly recommend using some wax on the screw before attempting to screw it in. Worked fine with wax. Screws were incredibly cheap and the holes were too tight. Luckily the small outer plate seem to hold it in fine, but better screws would have overcome this issue. Almost had to return it because of this. Could not get the screw back out since it snapped again when using vice grips.
4) How do they not include a template for the cutout in the wall? Saw there were dimensions on the side of the box after I'd already cut the hole. No idea why they weren't on the actual instruction page and only on the side of the box.

Price was better than the other products. The reasons above might be why. Did like the fact that the box is more recessed than their competitor's products. But I did get lucky when cutting the hole. It turns out there was a 2x4 about 4 inches above the hole I cut on the opposite drywall. The studfinder didn't see it because it was horizontal and on the opposite wall. Be aware of that since this is a deeply recessed box.
