    Recessed Pro Power Kit w/Straight Blade Inlet White

    Use this recessed pro-power kit with straight blade inlet to install power and low voltage cables behind your flat panel TV, your amplifier/home theater receiver, or other audio and video devices to your equipment room or at the location of your head end equipment.
     
    WHY DO I NEED THIS?
    Most local fire codes do not allow high voltage stranded power cables to be run behind a wall.  Therefore it is a violation to simply run your standard power cords through the wall.  Power cables for in-wall application should be solid core specifically designed for that purpose. Having an electrician come out and tap your electrical system to install an additional output behind your wall mounted display can be costly. This kit allows you to utilize an existing electrical outlet and bridge the power to your desired location. One plate is installed behind your equipment and the other along side an existing outlet. You connect the two plates together with some solid core power cabling you can find at your local hardware store. Then you plug your equipment into the extended outlet and use the included patch cable to connect the plate near your pre-existing outlet into the powered outlet. You can even plug in an electrical surge suppressor and/or line conditioner in between the powered outlet and the local input plate to provide cleaner, safer power to your equipment.

    This kit includes two plates and one 6ft straight power extension cable.
    Faceplate is 5.25" wide by 4.5" tall. Recession in the rear of the plate is 2.5" at it's longest point.

    Effective

    Pros: easy to install
    Price

    Cons: Gave it only a 4 for two reasons. First the plugs (both ends) of the extension cord (patch cable), that brings power from a true outlet to the in side of this system, are large and stick out from the wall significantly. Second, the locations for passing the A/V signal cable into the wall have no sealing method, so you have a fairly large opening into the wall. I stuffed some insulation around the cables to prevent drafts.

    This was very easy to install and effectively hid the cables. Price was much less than options from other vendors.

    Just What the Home Theater Doctor Ordered

    Pros: Avoids having to tap into existing electrical circuits. You don’t even have to turn the electricity off. Easy to install, easily accommodates a surge protector, and looks great. Overall I think this is a huge time saver and a brilliant product for the home DIYer.

    Cons: With the bottom plate installed correctly (in line and same orientation as the top plate), I found it impossible to push or pull an HDMI cable through the bottom plate. And since I had three cables to run, I gave up and turned the bottom plate upside down. It was still difficult, but much easier. I think the bottom patch cable hole needs to be re-engineered.

    Be careful tightening down the screws that secure the faceplate to the wall – don’t use a power drill or driver, do it by hand. I broke both of the anchor clips on the top plate using a battery powered driver. Luckily I had a spare 1 gang old-work box whose clips I was able to fashion onto the top plate.

    What I would like to see is a 1 gang stand-alone power plate or the option of using keystone jacks on the patch cord side. It would look a lot cleaner, but I understand their motivation to keep it simple and maintain a one size fits all approach.

    DON’T FORGET YOU NEED TO SUPPLY YOUR OWN ELECTRICAL CABLE (I USED 12-2) BETWEEN THE PLATES. Otherwise everything you need is included.

    Nearly idiot proof

    Pros: Clean, professional grade product.

    Cons: Had to go pick up some 12/2 romex from the local big box store, but since everyone's needs will be a little different, I can't fault the company for not providing it.

    The instructions say the product gets mounted between studs (for a retrofit, not a new construction). So I figure, hey this little box looks like the other little box in my wall which was nailed to a stud, so I'll just make my hole immediately adjacent to the stud. Nope, this won't leave you enough room for the little tabs that rotate out to stabilize the mount when you tighten the screws. In summary, yes the product gets mounted between studs in your wall, BUT LEAVE AT LEAST A 1/2 INCH GAP FROM YOUR STUDS, OR IT WON'T WORK AS DESIGNED. The first box I put in is a little wobbly, the second one I learned from my mistake and did it right, so it's rock solid. Learn from me.

    Pros: Great Design
    Easy Installation
    Crowd Pleaser

    Cons: None*
    *except, the complaints from other buyers, who do not fully comprehend the reason for the lower portion of the kit being oriented in the manner described previously.

    I've been an installer for more than 18 years, and only a few years ago... I found you guys. These Recessed Pro Power Kits really sell themselves. From the cut-in style plates, to the intuitive lower part of the kit, And, the price is right! I found exactly what I needed.

    There are many satisfied customers for whom I've installed, who are so grateful that we were able to completely hide all of their wiring inside the wall.
    When estimating a job, I usually add 3ft to the length of my connections, because I know that I need to feed the cables up through the bottom, and I want to leave "slack" in the wall

    A note to other pro installers: It may be to your advantage to carry a 25-50ft box of box of Romex... just sayin.

    Pros: This product is great at hiding wiring and makes it more convenient to connect a tv above a fireplace to not only the surround sound receiver, but to a surge protector as well. When wired in the wall properly, the opening for the hdmi cable is roomy enough for other cords. When only the hdmi cable is present the opening is spacious enough to allow the cable to move freely for televisions hanging from swiveling wall mounts.

    Cons: For the price paid on this product, I feel as though at least 15 ft of 14/2, 14 gauge standard electrical wiring should have been included. Instead, another $5 to $6 has to be added to cost because this wiring must be purchased separately. I also found that the dry wall supports on the face plates break very easily. I was still able to make it work because the supports on the boxes seemed to be more sturdy.

    Over all, when it comes to this product, I feel as though the pros out weighed the cons because with a little extra help from the local hardware store it still suited my needs and got the job done.
