Size: 3 gangColour: Color blanco
This worked great for running AV to my flat screen wall mounted TV. I liked the 3-gang a little better than a 2 as I was able to open a bigger hole to see what was going on in the wall. I mounted my TV over a direct vent fireplace and this three gang allowed me to make sure I was strapped to a stud and greater than 2 feet in all directions from the fireplace. Overall it worked great. I was able to get my arm in the wall and move around much better than a 2-gang would have let me.
For those that were talking about how to mount this to the wall, I think people don't realize that you should be using a mounting bracket with these. These are intended to go over a 3-gang box or low voltage mounting plate. If you don't have one, I picked up one and it mounted right to the drywall with ease and you don't have to worry about pulling it out. The reason it comes with the "flat screws like a light switch" as one reviewer put it is because it's designed to be installed like a light switch, NOT directly into drywall.
If you need a low voltage mounting bracket: Vanco LV3 PVC Low Voltage Mount Brackets (Triple)
I also uploaded a few pics if you need clarification.
The only downside to be aware of is this does open up a large hole in the wall. Make sure you aren't creating a huge draft situation. I used a little cotton insulation (I would advise against fiberglass since it's exposed) and it stopped the draft. If you're worried, light a match and blow it out right in front of the plate, if the smoke goes straight up, you're good.

Size: 2 gangColour: Color blanco
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.
this thing is very strong thick plastic ..u can force lot of wire through it & it wont break or bent I highly recommend this..the front entrance is somewhat narrow but deep...if u force it into place it wont even bent..nice ..I I bought seven of these & ill be buying more for sure ..deliver was super fast....
I ordered these and they worked perfectly!! only thing is i didnt know it didnt come with the wall mount plates that were sold separately so to finish up my little project i had to improvise lol but these worked so perfectly for what i needed them to. i used one for the ceiling for my projector and two for the wall with a bunch of coaxial cables and one for my brothers room to run a cat 5 cable that was over 100' long run lol
