How To: TV Cable Wiring

TV Cable Wiring

Getting Started

Love your TV but not where it’s located? Here’s a simple way to relocate your TV without installing a new cable outlet. In just five easy steps, we’ll help you rearrange your TV viewing area and clean up your TV cable clutter.

Easily relocate a TV cable to another part of a room by attaching the cable to the room’s baseboard using the Arrow T25 Staple Gun and Arrow T25 Round Crown Staples. Don’t forget to grab a pair of gloves (optional) and safety goggles. State, local and municipal codes vary for home improvements depending upon your location, so please check before proceeding with your residential project.

Other Materials

Start Repairing

Step 1

Begin by temporarily relocating the TV and its stand. Move all items away from the wall that will be in your path as you work. Remove the old cable from the wall. Consider using a cable in a color that blends with your baseboard; we replaced a black cable with white. Make sure the TV’s new location is near an electrical outlet.

Step 2

Three measurements will help you determine the length of cable you require. Measure the distance from the cable outlet to the top of the baseboard. Measure along the baseboard to the point just below where the TV’s cable input will be located. Measure from the baseboard to the TV’s cable input connection.

Step 3

Trail the new cable down the wall until it reaches the top of the baseboard. Pull the cable so there is no slack, but be careful not to pull so hard that you rip the socket out of the drywall.

Step 4

Using the Arrow T25 staple gun and Arrow T25 crown staples, place the first staple where the cable wire meets the baseboard. Be careful not to puncture the cable with the staple. When stapling the cable, be sure that there is enough space on both sides of the cable for the staple to fasten to the baseboard.

Step 5

Continue to trail the cable along the top of the baseboard, placing a staple every 12 -16 inches until you reach the desired location.

How many neutral decorative books does one need? Great question! Looking for a way to elevate your space? I’ve got the answer! Decorative books are a great option because they can be styled and re-styled in SO many spaces...SO many different ways. Perfect on shelves, tables, counters, desks, the possibilities are really endless. Yesterday on stories I shared how to make these but if you aren’t feeling crafty you can grab them on our website (link in bio), in our Etsy shop: henrocompany or on Amazon. Also, these would make a great housewarming, hostess or other gift! ______________________ #coffeetabledecor #coffeetablebook #coffeetable #coffeetablestyling #decorativebooks #bookdecor #shelfie #shelfstyling #diy #diybook #diycrafts #diycraft #crafting #craftingideas #craftingfun #madewitharrow #mycurrentdesignsituation #apartmenttherapy #finditstyleit #homestyle #makehomeyours #mydomaine #howwedwell #prettylittleinteriors #rusticfarmhouse #henrocompany #homeinspiration #homedecor #interiorstyling #modernfarmhouse

We have a #MadeWithArrow tip of the day, folks! When using one of Arrow’s electric tools like the ET200BN Professional Electric Nailer, the contact safety needs to be fully depressed before the tool will fire. This means you *must* pick up the front of the tool each time before firing another shot. #MadeWithArrow #diy #stapleguns #diyproject #handmade #staplegun #diyprojects #stapler #tools #diytips
