Legrand in-Wall TV Power Kit at Best Buy

Most people who have a flat screen TV have it mounted, I know I have a few up in my house. When that happens you get cords hanging down the wall. In the past I have bought products to “hide” them but all it did was group them together as you still saw them. Recently I was sent a kit from Best Buy to try out. It’s a Legrand in-Wall TV Power Kit.

I will admit it was a little intimidating when I first saw it, but then I watched a video on the step by step and was a little more ok with it. It also helped that my amazing boyfriend was available to help me (being disabled, I probably wouldn’t have been able to do it with my issues). This works with any TV as the size doesn’t matter. You also don’t need an electrician as you aren’t splitting wires or anything.


Before you get started my tip is to buy a drywall saw, which you can get at pretty much any hardware store.

Step one

Find the stud and go away from there. Where you place the box you want to have hidden behind the TV. Take the cut out from the kit and place level on the wall and trace it. Then using your drywall saw, cut along the outline and remove the drywall.

just don't let the cat jump in

Seep two

Find the nearest outlet (should be within the same stud area of your other cut out.) Measure how far that is up from the floor and add ¼ of an inch. Then take your green or Grey small frame and place with the wings out. Make sure it’s level and trace around the inside part of the outer frame. Like you did before, cut it out and remove the drywall.

Step three

Run your AV cables through the top hole and into the bottom hole. Them take the recessed box (the large box with big cord) and straighten out the cord. Feed the cord from the top to the bottom hole just like the AV cables. Then feed the AV cables through the side opening in the box. Once all the cords are through, put the recessed box into the wall and secure by tightening the screws with a screwdriver (this will tighten the wings securing it to the wall).

Step Four

At the bottom pull all the cords through the small green or gray frame, and place the frame into the wall (with the wing going into the wall). Just like with the recessed box, take your screwdriver and tighten the wings securing them to the wall.

Step Five

Place the AV cables through the top of the power inlet and the power connector in the bottom. Take the back cover and snap it over the back. Take two of the provided screws and put in the holes and tighten. Then attach to the green or gray frame with the other two screws until tight.  Feed the AV cables through the faceplate and place over the outlet and tighten the small screws.

Step 6

Attach the power cable and plug in along with all the cords to the TV and other devices. This is also where you would plug the TV into the outlet at the top recessed box.

All done, and enjoy your cord free wall.

If you have anyone on your Christmas list that may love this, or yourself, I recommend heading over to Best Buy to check it out the Legrand in-Wall TV power Kit. I know I will be buying one for my other rooms.
