Space-saving, wall-mountable surge protector
Our take on the Chief PACPC1 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Protect your mounted TV, and preserve its clean look

You have flexible mounting options — install it on your TV wall-mount or directly on the wall itself. And all the brackets, attachments, and mounting hardware you need are included.
