Hi, I am Drew Fendy here today to demonstrate how to install a jack for your telephone. We are going to install a wall mount now and we have got the wire fished up through. Here is the wall and it is much like an electrical box except the back is completely open, with low voltage, we do not need a closed box. We have these little wings on here so that when it is inserted into a wall and the screw is tightened the wings pop up and clamp onto the wall. So I have got the wire through already, we will feed it in through the wire, put the box in with the wings, and I am going to cheat a little bit with this one because we are going to use a power screwdriver. If you have one, great if not you do not you could do it with a manual screwdriver. As I turn that screw, those wings are tightening up. That box is real secure to the wall so now we can wire in the receptacle for the phone jack.
