I bought a pair of these 2 gang plates to hide the cables that would otherwise be visible dropping from my wall mounted TV to the cabinet beneath it. Mount the top plate behind your TV with the opening facing down, and the bottom plate behind your cabinet with the opening facing up.

I was initially wondering if a 1, 2, or 3 gang was the correct size. I'm glad I chose the 2 gang as it comfortably fits 2 HDMI cables, 1 optical cable, 1 analog audio cable, 1 component video cable, and VGA/audio cable. I can drop cables from the top plate and not fuss too much pulling them out the bottom plate.

Don't mistakenly think you could probably squeeze the cables in a 1 gang version. While the combined width of the cables might fit, getting all the connectors through would be near impossible I would think. I measure the widest point of the opening at 2-7/8" for this 2 gang.

7/28/10 Update - Product still performs well.

This is a convenient way to hide low voltage wiring behind your drywall. However, be aware that there are all kinds of laws (construction code and fire code) on what you can and cannot run behind your drywall (which is a kind of fire retardant material). I've seen notes here of how people are running extension cords behind their drywall through these gangways for access and some have even posted pictures. Perhaps unknowingly those people might be breaking construction and fire code and in the process endangering themselves and their families. Also, your insurance might not cover you if you break code and have illegal in wall wiring.

If you need an electrical receptacle moved don't endanger yourself by running a cheap extension cord through these gangways, contact a licensed electrician and have the work done professionally. Also be aware that you can't just run any wire behind your drywall (even low voltage wire), there are ratings for wires that can be run behind drywall. Most in-wall work requires a CL2 rating on the wire.

Regarding this product. I bought it and almost used it but decided to go with the cleaner look of professional finished wallplates and formal in-wall electrical boxes, CL2 rated wiring, and professional installation just to be extra careful (and there are details - like you can't run your electrical and your speaker wire through the same 2x4 access holes). No, I'm not a professional electrician and don't mean to scare people away from home improvement projects - just raising awareness based on what I learned doing these things.

This product is clearly labeled LOW VOLTAGE but that doesn't mean you can run any wire behind your drywall. For your safety, don't breach your drywall fire-rating.

Also be aware that gandways like this provide access for cockroaches, insects and other pests to your drywall interior as hiding and nesting spots so take the appropriate precautions.

Nice product, durable good construction. Used it to run my tv wires behind the wall. Does what you want it to do. Would like this packaged with the backing brackets instead of having to oder them seperatly but I guess if you already have a gang box in the wall you wouldn't need them.

We used this along with the base Arlington LV2-1 2-Gang Low Voltage Mounting Bracket, 1-Pack to hide the cables behind our TV. You will need one base and one white plate for the top, and again for the bottom. It was very easy to install, halfway between the studs. This is a very good and large opening, will hold at least 5 sets of cords and then some. Be sure you have cords long enough for hanging your TV up higher; I suggest these: AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable (9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters) - Supports Ethernet, 3D, and Audio Return [Newest Standard] and Coleman Cable 3531 14/3 General-Use Appliance Extension Cord, 3-Foot .

These wall plates are perfect for wires exiting the wall in a bundle. I ran 3 HDMI and two composite wires and the double gang plate worked ideally. I can push the wires back into the wall to where they barely show and it makes the entire installation look very neat overall.

Good build quality, easy to install with a Dual Gang Low Voltage Mounting Bracket. I'm definitely glad I went with the 2-gang plate as I have about 7 cables going through the wall. Would purchase again.

I purchased this plate to go along with Arlington LV2-1CS Low Voltage Mounting Bracket, 2-Gang to go on the wall to hide wires behind the wall during installation of my 40inch Sony LCD TV. The plate would not align properly with the mounting bracket. Despite that, I like the plate and would recommend it. The wires came out nicely from the opening.

It's a wall plate & the color matches other white wallplates so I'll focus my review on some issues that I ran across during & after installing. The depth of these was greater than the clearance between my walls so I simply cut back some of the backing with snips in till it fit flush. I'm sure they're designed for standard construction but with some reworking they'll fit in most situations. The description also clearly states that these are for low voltage cords only. I remember reading that when I purchased these but didn't really comprehend what it meant in till it was already in the mail & I realized that my plan of running the power cord to the tv through this plate would be a no go. If you want to hide the power cord you'll need a power bridge to comply with most building codes. DataComm sells a combo pack here on Amazon.

This size is more suited for component cables or multiple hdmi cords. My old setup had multiple input cords from various devices & there was still plenty of room to spare. I'm now running everything to a receiver down low with a single hdmi out through the wall & this large plate is overkill. I regretfully bought these before fully planning out how I was going to run everything. Decide on what wires your going to run, where the plates will go, & what you might have in the future before selecting the plate size & set up.
