Size: 2 gangColor: White Verified Purchase
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.

I mounted a TV on the wall of my kitchen and was looking for an inexpensive way to hide the wires. This is ideal.

It's simple to install. You just need two of these and two low voltage brackets like this: Arlington LV1-1CS Single Gang Low Voltage Mounting Bracket Device You use a stud finder to make sure you're not looking to put this in a stud, and then use a drywall saw to cut the hole. Repeat to put the one down below. (Use a level to ensure they're straight.) Insert the low voltage mounting bracket in both the upper and lower and then put the plate on the upper one. Start fishing cables through the wall. (It's easier to leave the plate off the lower one until you fish all the wires out of the wall first.)

Through a one-gang plate, I have an HDMI cable, a VGA cable, a set of composite cables with sound, a 1/8" headphone jack cable, and a network cable. It's tight, but everything fits.

Order these plates. You won't be disappointed.

This is a simple cover plate for a wall hole that provides a neat, orderly way to feed cables from your Home Theater system into the wall, or out of the wall at the TV Monitor location. It lets you buy one, long set of cables, rather than one set for inside the wall and two patch sets for home theater receiver to the wall, and wall to TV monitor. If you have more than one type of connection, this will make your install much less expensive!
Things to know:
1. You will need TWO, if you are going to use a single set of cables!
2. You will need a old-work, low-power wall box for each one purchased. You can get these for $1-3 each (depending on style) at your local "Big-Box" hardware store. (Check both the electrical area and the home networking areas to find both styles.)
3. When planning your installation, recognize that the clump of wires coming out of the wall will not make many wives happy! Plan to have both boxes hidden by the TV or Home theater cabinet.
4. If moving connections horzintally from one wall location to another, you are likely to run into one or more studs. If you do not have experience with blind drilling large holes, you will be much happier taking the cables into the attic or crawl space in one stud space, and back into the wall at the new stud space.

This is a great product! But if you are running a lot of wires, like I did, then I recommend you buy the double gang plate. I ran my surround sound(12 gauge), 3 HDMI cables, 1 TOS link, 1 coax, and 1 Cat 6 cable and barely had enough room.

Someone mentioned that you cannot do this without having back access or a new build. That is false. Just need to take your time when cutting the wall and boring through the studs.

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.
