New DIY Hidden In-Wall Solutions Add USB Connectivity and Surge Protection to Safely and Easily Extend Power Cords to Wall-Mounted Displays
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — July 15, 2021 — Legrand | AV today announced new models for its popular and easy-to-install On-Q In-Wall Power & Cable Management Kits. Now homeowners can not only safely extend power to wall-mounted displays and accompanying devices while neatly concealing power and AV cables inside the wall but also have the convenience of USB power ports or surge protection in the same outlet.
“Technology shouldn’t sacrifice the clean look of a room due to power cable clutter; likewise, power outlets shouldn’t dictate where to put a display,” said James Rutherford, On-Q product manager for Legrand. “When we introduced the On-Q Power and Cable Management Kits, it provided homeowners with a professional, safe, and affordable power solution for installing displays and accompanying devices virtually anywhere in less than 30 minutes without hiring an electrician. Our new kits give them additional options for powering USB devices behind the TV or for adding protection to their display investment without cables or bulky, unsightly boxes.”
Each in-wall kit includes a power input module with drywall bracket and a prewired, 6-foot, UL-rated power cable. Offered in white to blend in with a home’s décor, the module’s decorator power inlet strap provides the flexibility of ganging other connections. The duplex outlet features a recessed design to accommodate almost any type of power plug, including right angles and wall warts, while a brush strap opening allows for the connection of AV cables. The new kits include: the CPU306W-V1 In-Wall Power and Cable Management Kit with two USB ports for connecting and powering streaming media devices such as Amazon Fire TV and Roku Streaming Stick as well as display back lighting and other USB-enabled home entertainment products; and the CPS306W-V1 In-Wall Power and Cable Management Kit with Surge Protection that are universally compatible with any TV.
