To make the cable connection for your TV or Internet clear, install the source wire inside the wall to an electrical box. This cable then connects to a wall plate called an F-Connector wall plate. Doing this eliminates unsightly wires running across the floor or along the wall of your room. An F-Connector wall plate fastens to the electrical box in much the same way a light switch or outlet wall plate does.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Grasp the end of the coaxial cable that is in the electrical box and place against the threaded portion on the back of the F-Connector wall plate.

  2. 2

    Twist the end of the coaxial cable clockwise to thread it on to the F-Connector wall plate. Stop twisting once it is hand tight.

  3. 3

    Fold the remainder of the cable into the electrical box and push the F-Connector wall plate tight to the wall.

  4. 4

    Fasten the wall plate to the electrical box with the provided screws. Tighten until snug. Over tightening may crack plastic F-Connector wall plates.

Tips and warnings

  • Once you've installed the wall plate, you can connect the coaxial cable from your TV, satellite dish or cable TV box to the front of the F-connector wall plate.
  • If you have multiple coaxial cables coming from the electrical box, select an F-Connector wall plate with multiple connectors.
