Hiding Cables | Wire Concealment Options

Method A (In-Wall Vertical Wire Concealment)

Method A (In-Wall Vertical Wire Concealment)

Requires Power Outlet Behind the TV

Low-Voltage AV cables can be fished through the wall. However, in order to hide the Power Cord for your wall mounted TV, it needs to be plugged into an outlet behind the TV. Therefore, this method requires an electrical outlet or Bridge-Style Power Kit behind the TV as power cord(s) are not allowed to be fished / buried in the wall. *This option is Applicable only for walls with cavity such as drywall. NOT suitable for concrete, brick walls and most exterior plaster walls.

Method B (Wire Management with Wire Raceway)

Method B (Wire Management with Wire Raceway)

Budget Friendly

Both Low-Voltage AV cables & Power Cord(s) can be enclosed in the wire raceway to neatly hide cables and the wire raceway can stick flat against (non-textured) wall with pre-attached strong adhesive. This avoids the extra cost for a new power outlet, hence a budget friendly option to neatly manage the wires if you don't already have a dedicated power outlet for the TV installed up high on the wall. FYI: Wire raceways that we use are paintable. 

Hiding Power Cord for your Wall Mounted TV

The ONLY way you can hide the power cord out of sight is to plug it into a power outlet behind the TV.

FYI: Power cord is NOT considered as low-voltage cable and therefore, it cannot be buried / concealed in the wall.

Bridge-Style Power Kit

Option 1: Install a Bridge-Style Power Kit

Starting from


We supply & install Bridge-Style Power Kit. This is a recommended option for most cases. We have several types available. We can advise the best option for your setup. This option is also more cost-effective compared to installing a new electrical outlet.


  • If you plan to use a component stand / furniture below the TV where the it can hide the inlet & other cables coming out of the wall below the TV.
  • If you don't have an existing electrical outlet dedicated for the TV (behind where the TV will be mounted)
  • If you want to use a high-quality Surge Protector / Power Conditioner / UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for your TV along with your components.
Bridge-Style Power Kit Example


Install a New Electrical Outlet

Option 2: Install a New Electrical Outlet

Market Price from


Get a new electrical outlet installed by a licensed electrician behind where the TV will be mounted. The cost could vary significantly depending on where the nearest usable power source is located.


  • If you have a Smart TV and ONLY intend to use Smart TV Apps & Wifi Internet with NO components connected to your TV.
  • If you plan to keep your components out of sight elsewhere, so there's only TV hanging on the wall with nothing else around it.
  • If you want to install a component wall shelf below or above your TV & have nothing sitting on the floor below the TV.
