Excelente producto, muy robusto y con buen acabado. Además lo conseguí a $65 pesos El único detalle es que este tipo de productos son diseñados para ser instalados en paredes de aglomerado o sheetrock, por lo que son demasiado largos en profundidad y no caben en las cajas electricas (chalupas) normales. La solución fue cortar parte de la extensión del canal de placa para que cupiera en el espacio designado
This item is easy to install and it does a nice clean job of hiding the wires after install. It is a must have for home theater enthusiast who want a nice clean look.
update: still enjoy the item and it does what it's supposed to but i have had issues with the depth of the product and the space needed between the walls. The cables feed thru it effortlessly but they can only be fed one way. The wires can either come thru one end of the plate due to the design inside the wall, so it would be from the top or bottom. There is a curve inside the plate that will only allow the wires to be "run" inside the wall from one direction. so keep this in mid if you are trying to feed wires from both top and bottom, it can be done but it will be a more difficult install.
I have installed a total of six of these in my current and last house. Works great for cable management. Simple to install, just have to use anchors in your drywall if you don't use a box within the wall. Its easier to just drywall anchors, just don't cut too much drywall away or you'll be forced to use a box.
I used anchors because I wanted this unit to be next to the cable jack on my wall, just made it look better and it was a better location than installing above or below with a box. The opening requires cutting drywall very close to the anchors, you will likely need an anchor with wings to secure behind the wall instead of screw in anchors.
Either way, great for cable management and simple to install.
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.
3.0 de 5 estrellasNeeds template to make for faster, easier installation

The size is good for the number of cables that I need to fit in this opening, however there is no template included to better trace the cut-out needed in drywall. Such a simple thing to include for an easier installation especially since mounting screws are so close to the cut out area. I still made this work for me, but installation was much harder than it should be.
These Plates are perfect. The opening is much larger than I anticipated. I was thinking maybe a double gang plate would be needed for the rats nest of cat5 cable feeding my modem/router/switches. The face has a 2"x 1-3/8" opening and the inside wall throat is 2-1/2" x 1-3/8" to give plenty of room for my job. I am very pleased with this deal. No 90 degree bends with these babies and fast shipping with the best price in the whole world. While shopping for a Low-Voltage Electrical Box to hang these plates I went with Carlon made boxes from the local hardware store. The Carlons have 4 holes outlining the cutout needed to mount the box. When you go to draw your template to cutout your drywall, 4 holes make for a cleaner and faster job over the other boxes with only 2 holes. Two holes are doable, but I don't do this everyday and would rather work smart and error free. The Carlon boxes are just over a buck per piece too.
