If you’re like most homeowners, your home is probably crammed with cables. HDMI cables, power cables, Ethernet cables… the list goes on and on. But what if you want to use one of those cables to connect something else? Like, say, your TV? In this blog post, we will show you how to fish an HDMI cable through a wall. This is a useful trick if you need to hide a cable or if you just want to save some space. And best of all, it’s easy to do!
What You’ll Need
The first step is to identify the cable that you’ll need. In this case, we’re using an HDMI cable.
To fish the cable through the wall, start by locating a hole that’s large enough for the HDMI cable to fit through.
Next, use a drill or a screwdriver to make a hole in the wall near where you want the HDMI cable to go.
Then, thread the HDMI cable through the hole and tie it off at the other end.
Finally, cover up the opening with drywall or wallpaper and paint over it if necessary.
How to Fish the HDMI Cable Through the Wall
This simple step-by-step guide will show you how to fish an hdmi cable through a wall! This is a great way to hide your cables and keep your entertainment area looking neat and tidy.
1. Cut a hole in the drywall approximately 3/4″ larger than the HDMI cable.
2. Insert the HDMI cable into the hole, making sure it is secured with screws (you may also use anchors if available).
3. Cover the entire contraption with electrical tape to make sure it is watertight and secure.
4. Plug in your devices and enjoy your newly hidden cords!
If you have a newer flat screen TV and want to connect your HDMI cable to it, but the cord won’t go through the wall, there’s probably a simple solution. All you need is some pliers or a wire stripper and an HDMI connector. Just start by stripping about 2 inches of insulation off one end of the HDMI connector, then insert it into the other end of the cable that goes in the wall. Put the pliers on either side of the connector and squeeze tight; if done correctly, you should be able to pull the connector out fromthe other side ofthe wall.
