Installing a Cable TV Jack


You've probably seen cable-TV installations where the bare coaxial cable simply enters a room via a crude hole drilled through the floor or a baseboard (maybe you've seen them in your own house!). They're functional but not too decorative. For a more finished and permanent installation, do the job right and install a bona-fide wall jack.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

SKILL SCALE
Easy

TIME REQUIRED
If your cable is already routed inside the wall, you'll be done in under an hour.

TOOLS
Wallboard saw
Screwdriver
Adjustable wrench

MATERIALS
TV wall jack

Cable TV JackMake a cutout opening 1 1/2 inches wide and 3 3/4 inches high at the television-jack location. Pull the cable through the opening, and install two television-jack mounting brackets in the cutout.

 

 

 

 

Cable TV JackUse an adjustable wrench to attach the cable F-connector to the back of the television jack. Then attach the jack to the wall by screwing it onto the mounting brackets.
