Sanus Systems is now shipping the Sanus Elements ELM803 Recessed Low Voltage In-Wall Box for a list price of $19.99.
The ELM803 installs behind a mounted flat-panel TV, allowing the TV to sit as close to the wall as possible, and routes cables through the wall. The box can be mounted on sheetrock walls using the built-in work tabs or attached directly to select Sanus mounts with removable ClickFit brackets.
The brackets snap onto the mount for a clean installation with no drilling or wall mounting required.
"With the introduction of ultra-thin mounts, TVs can be placed an inch or less from the wall," Sanus director of product management Steve Frank said. "The TV looks great but it's often more difficult to install electrical boxes in the wall behind the mount and still have room to plug cables into the outlets. The ELM803 solves this problem with an in-wall wiring solution and plenty of space for cable management that's also easy to install."
The ELM803 features cable routing holes, single-gang low voltage pass-through inlet/outlet knockouts and 56 cubic inches of space for jack packs and smaller client boxes.
