Cover/canopy for routing low-voltage through a wall?

Hello folks, been lurking in this forum for a while so newbie here. I've been trying to figure out the proper way to route low voltge (for LEDs etc) through an interior wall to prevent exposing the cables, and so far I found a lot of useful information about using smurf tubes, etc.

However, I don't seem to see any instructions concerning what types of covers/canopies to use to bring the low voltage through the surface of the wall. Is there a standard cover/canopy that is used to bring low voltage out of the wall box? If so, does the cover/canopy have some sort of plug, or do the low voltage wires just come out of the cover/canopy?

Once again, newbie here so there might be obvious things that I don't know about yet. Any advice or links to photos/instructions will be appreciated!

- K.

You should be able to find something on this link or you could use a plate and keystone jacks.
