Run power and A/V cables neatly behind your wall with this handy kit from Sanus.

The PowerBridge system comes with all the necessary mounting hardware and a cutout template for do-it-yourself installation.

I couldn't be more pleased with this product. I concealed all my wires. My builder placed my wall studs 12 inches on center instead of 16 but not a real problem just makes the fit very snug.

Why did you buy this?

Looks great plus the reviews make me think it will work for exactly what I need to do. [ CHARLES  Mar 14, 2017 ]
Convenient way to run power in the wall without having to install a new outlet behind the tv. [ Christopher  Jan 25, 2017 ]
I came across this item while on the Crutchfield Web site and searched other sites and could not fine this product at a better price nor was it available at the couple of big box audio retailer's. [ Christopher  Jan 03, 2017 ]
purchased and installed one before. very well engineered [ William  Dec 24, 2016 ]
This will make my tv install easier. [ Keith  Sep 08, 2016 ]
I had already purchased all the parts i needed to install a traditional 110V outlet behind the TV (wall mounting a flat panel) and was really not liking the idea of my TV being powered by direct house current and not going through a surge protector or power conditioner. Then i stumbled across this product, and it provides the solution to my problem, now i can have the concealed power cord, AND be plugged into my power conditioner/surge protector. [ Zachary  Jul 14, 2016 ]
To avoid hiring an electrician. [ August  Jul 08, 2016 ]
As I'm putting the tv mounted on the wall and a sound bar I need to hide the wires to have a professional look without paying for it. It will be placed behind tv mount for a flawless look. [ Joseph  May 03, 2016 ]
Functionality and it looks very proffessional [ Lucius  Apr 12, 2016 ]
My brother gave me the scoop on these units! [ Rudolph  Jan 13, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

i used a standard 10ft HDMI (high quality) between cable box and tv. The ELM806 is in an interior wall with no insulation. I installed a different model in an outside wall with a fire block that i had to expose and cut notches to get 2HDMI and the power cord through. The cables there are run between the sheetrock and insulation. These installs were undertaken during renovations by a contractor. Works great but choosing the right wall mount for your TV is critical - too close to a corner with a swivel/tilt can severely limit accessibility to the HDMis behind the tv. Good luck The install is simple and quick. take car in cutting your walls but sheetrock is easy to repair and repaint. [ William  Jun 05, 2017 ]
The correct answer is any cable you run in the wall should be UL listed and approved for that use. However I am sure many people use a normal HDMI cables with no issues. Fishing the wire was easy for me, I used an old metal coat hanger and it snaked between the drywall and insulation with no issues. Overall a very easy install and highly recommended. [ Tim  Jun 05, 2017 ]
Yes I have 4 Hdmi cables in my wall . U can use a cable wire or u could use a electrical fish tool u could get from harbor freight or just use a coat hanger my home is new so it was pretty easy to move the insulation I used a cable wire and I taped it to all my cables and pulled from top to bottom one shot gool luck [ Dooraj  Jun 04, 2017 ]
You can put the HDMI wire through the the opening and pass through the wall to come out of the other open on the bottom connector. The power source is for 110v [ Joseph  Jun 04, 2017 ]
I used a standard, though new, HDMI cable; and all works fine. Mine is on an outside wall . . . so I used a fish tape from the lower housing to the upper housing . . . and pulled the cable back down. I also pulled a couple extra pieces of string along with the cable for future use. Hope this helps. [ Thomas  Jun 04, 2017 ]
