seen cable-TV installations where the bare coaxial cable
simply enters a room via a crude hole drilled through the
floor or a baseboard (maybe you've seen them in your own
house!). They're functional but not too decorative. For a
more finished and permanent installation, do the job right
and install a bona-fide wall jack.
1. Make a cutout opening
1 1/2 inches wide and 3 3/4 inches high at the
television-jack location. Pull the cable through the
opening, and install two television-jack mounting
brackets in the cutout.
2. Use an adjustable
wrench to attach the cable F-connector to the back of
the television jack. Then attach the jack to the wall
by screwing it onto the mounting brackets.
