Be sure to order a Wall Box to hold the Distribution Hub
Old Work Brackets are designed specifically for the installation of low-voltage devices such as a cable television, data communication or telephone jacks in an existing wall.

The backless box design accommodates the space and bend radius requirements of coaxial or data/communication cables. It also eliminates the need for metal plates, lags or screws, and can be installed vertically or horizontally.

I have looked everywhere for this item and was very happy to finally find it. Just what I needed for the new home.
RICHARD -- arvada, CO   9/7/2003
Great, but BIG! How about making it available in a more compact size? Rack mount is nice, but I would think that it could be made for a 1U size rack. 2U is 2 much!
