1-Gang Low Voltage Mounting Bracket
Install wall plates without the need for a full in-wall electrical box using this 1-Gang Low Voltage Mounting Bracket from Monoprice!
This mounting bracket allows you to install a wall plate for use with low-voltage cables, such as audio, video, and network cable connections. The bracket can be adjusted to fit drywall/paneling from 1/4" to 1" thick. The bracket measures 2.2" x 3.6" and is both UL and CSA certified.
Note: The color indicated can vary in tone and/or hue between production runs and manufacturing facilities. The color of this item may not be an exact match to any other product, even if they are indicated as being the same color, whether sold by Monoprice or any other vendor. Individual pieces may also vary slightly in color from one another.
Monoprice typically resells the Arlington LV1 rough-in. I looked at the Arlington spec sheet, and the exact material type is not specified. Perhaps you can contact Arlington industries to find out. Google for their number.
PROS: Good build quality
Very secure once installed
Simple to use
CONS: Monoprice NEEDS to put a cutout template in with these.
They don't sit 100% flat
PROS: Same product that Lowe's and Home Depot sells, but about $5 cheaper.
The one caveat I will throw out there is for anyone wanting to use this with the single gang low voltage wall plate. When installed, the screw mechanism blocks the opening of the wall plate and cuts down the usable opening to about 2/3 the original size. Luckily I was only passing a few small speaker wires through so it wasn't a problem. But if you are planning on putting a power cord or other connectored cable through, I would recommend the 2-gang wall plate.
PROS: Easy to install
CONS: No cutout template
Screw mechanism gets in the way of the wall plate (PID 3997)
PROS: 1.) Ample screw lengths and binding cleats allow for fire-rated drywall thicknesses in excess of 1"
2.) The interior dimension can be uses as a template for cutting the necessary hole in the drywall.
3.) The cleat system is foolproof.
4.) Fit’s all monoprice single-gang wiring connector plates for Ethernet and other wire connectors.
Would recommend pre-tightening the wings to just bigger than the thickness of your drywall before installing. The screws don't come all the way threaded through so it's easier to get a grip on them before shoving them in, and once the bracket is in place, it'll be a few quick turns of the screwdriver to get 'em snug.
PROS: sturdy, cheap, low profile, familiar
PROS: easy to use
PROS: Super simple to use
CONS: Absolutely none
