How to Install Your Wiring Solution

 

If you're installing a flat-screen TV but want to avoid the hassle and expense of running cables behind a wall, then look no further than the Wiring Solution. The Wiring Solution allows you to surface-route cables from a home theater unit up to a flat panel screen, by covering the cord run and blending it almost seamlessly into your wall. In addition to looking great, the Wiring Solution is also simple to install … it requires minimal tools and supplies, and can be tackled even by those home theater buffs who don't have much DIY experience!
