I'm very handy and had done drywall work in the past, and with my new apartment complex giving the green light to run wires in the wall I immediately set out to find a code-spec solution. I can do romex, but didn't want to modify existing infrastructure (IE undoing an outlet to run another drop from it). Additionally, I wanted the ability to place my TV behind a battery backup with the rest of my equipment which would not be possible with a romex installation.
PowerBridge seemed to be the best solution, and now that it is installed - I'm quite satisfied.
I'm fairly convinced that even your less-handy homeowner could accomplish a power bridge install after watching a few videos and doing some research. It even comes with a template for your cuts, just mark around the edges and stick as close to it with your drywall saw as you can.
In my installation, I had to make a pumpkin cut halfway and drill through a cross bracing (It was *not* a fire block) to complete my install, which would be a little advanced for your average DIY to do as patching a pumpkin cut can be a bit tricky to get it done right.
For the first time, I'm able to have 0 visible cables running to my wall-mounted TV and am safe in the knowledge that the power drop is to code. The ability to disconnect the TV at the bottom is pretty handy - thus the aforementioned battery backup installation.
Installation is really dead simple, just remember to not over-tighten the flanges that hold them in place, they are plastic.
I’m glad I got it so fast with in a day or two not only that it’s the real deal
Great add-on product for charging since my phone only came with the cord. Reasonable price and works well.
Why pay more if you don't have to?
