Use our HDMI Wall Plates to protect your in-wall HDMI cables!
HDMI wall plates are commonly used in professional home theater and commercial audio video installations. They are ideal for helping you organize and manage both HDMI and audio video cables that are installed in the wall. The most common application for the use of HDMI wall plates is when they are used to pass through HDMI cables from in the wall to outside the wall as they deliver a signal to your audio video equipment. Basically the HDMI wall plate has one or multiple built in female to female HDMI couplers integrated in the wall plate that allow the longer in-wall rated HDMI cables to be ran and attached directly into the wall plate. This allows you to use shorter easier to manage HDMI cables to be ran directly from the wall (externally) to the audio video components they are delivering signals to. Using HDMI wall plates give your HDMI cables a permanent in-wall installation while allowing you to use the smaller cables for everyday plug and play use. Using HDMI wall plates allow you to take the stress off of the longer more expensive in-wall HDMI cables and put it all on the shorter less expensive cables. Using HDMI wall plates will extend the life of your cables while giving your installation a clean professional look.
