How to Hide Your TV Wires for $10

ATTENTION: In many areas, it is a code violation to put your power cord in your wall as I did in this video. Putting Audio/Video cords in your wall is fine but, for power, adding an extra outlet may be required by code so check out my video on how to do that! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pe6H9sZMkhA

Want to make the whole process easier? Check out my video using a kit to install this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSqbXl5m4_o

This only works if your house is made of wood… useless in the netherlands, every house here made of bricks

FortressSlayer53 says:

My wall is made with concrete so doing this means i have to destroy my wall

Andrew Rogers says:

Haha I got an old house with drywall.

Leigharyck says:

I know nothing about electrical stuff. Why can’t you just plug your power cord into a surge protector and call it a day? (After the power cord is run through the wall)

Thomas Anderson says:

why is that TV mounted so high?

V T says:

what about bugs in that hole you just opened the door to hell

Bathysphere says:

Ok, I understand that running a TV power cable behind the wall could be a code violation. But what about just coaxial and other audio/video and signal type cables? Thanks.

JCS says:

Two of those and like 5 holes on the dry wall later I can officially call my attempt a failure, THERE WERE STUDS EVERYWHERE!!!

Steven M says:

Great job. Thank youuuu

Maria Q says:

Great job!!

Obi Wan Can Blow Me says:

I was exited until I found out my walls are made out of hard cement or some hard shit

Morgan Bev says:

Walls in your place are so different from where I’m at. Here we use cement block and concrete. And of course paint…

gus barba says:

Beware in California standard framing bays may have horizontal blocking at 4ft.

OriginalNoseBleed says:

In UK my houses is made of brick hard enough to get a nail in the wall never mind a hole lol

Varun Verma says:

Bad idea even if the code allows it or if you’re just throwing away HDMI cables. Just think about making life easy for mice/rodents and other creatures to enter behind the drywall.

will holsey says:

Oscillating tool with the qbit single gain bit works much better and faster than a utility knife

Newton Daring16 says:

Haha i can’t cut my wall plz help me cuz, my wall made by bricks….

Old Timer says:

Wonder if using white plastic shallow rectangler pvc bout 2″ wide would look good running all the wires through it, it would save from having to cut couple holes in wall.

LRN2DIY says:

BE ADVISED: While running your HDMI and other A/V cables in the wall is fine, in many areas, putting your power cord in your wall is against code. If that’s the case in your area, please see this video on adding a separate outlet for your TV. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pe6H9sZMkhA

Aris Houwing says:

So the tv that high is for the giraffe pets you have?

Power Nerd Pro says:
