Keystone wall plates are used to finish off the trim in network cabling installations.

Keystone wall plates are basically the plates used to hold all your connections as they are installed in a room, office, cubical, or at the end-user locations. Keystone wall plates are the finishing touch at the end of a network cabling installation.
In a network cabling application most often cables are ran from a closet, network rack, or a technology room out to all the end-user locations. These cables could be used for a number of audio, video, voice, or data network purposes. But the end result is that all those cables need to get out to their final destination so they can be used to attach and support the connection of numerous electronic devices. These electronic devices could be computers, televisions, telephones, or any other devices that are connected to a network or need to receive a network signal to function. All of these connections are most commonly terminated with some type of connector or jack to allow end-users to easily plug devices into a network. Once these cables are terminated into a jack they are ready to be snapped into a keystone wall plate that will hold, support, and organize them during connectivity use.

Classic keystone wall plates are universal, which means you can insert most keystone jacks directly into them.

Can I mount a keystone wall plate right onto the wall?
You can but it is not best practice. Keystone wall plates are designed to mount onto low voltage mounting brackets that are installed in the wall. These low voltage brackets are put in place to create a permanent and durable outlet to support both a wall plate and the connections they are housing. Once the low voltage mounting bracket is in place then you can easily screw your keystone wall plate onto the bracket. The low voltage mounting brackets are designed to match the screw and hole placements on the keystone wall plates. Once screwed-down the end result is a neatly installed wall plate that is snug against the wall. Adding new outlets and wall plates is very easy and can be done in a matter of minutes.
What tools do I need to install a keystone wall plate?
Assuming you already have a low voltage mounting bracket in the wall, all you need is a screw driver to install your keystone wall plates. But if you need to create a new outlet from scratch you will need a drywall saw, level, a screw driver, and the low voltage mounting brackets to insert in the wall. If this a new outlet in an existing home or business then you will need an Arlington LV1, LV2, LV3, or LV4 low voltage mounting bracket depending on the wall plate size and gang quantity you want in a particular wall plate location.
