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.
