Looking for this wall plate (coax/outlet combo) pic inside


I have a 3 gang box with two outlets and a coax for my tv.
Is this up to code?

I looked online without any luck, is there a website that would have these unique plates?

I hope you know that you need a divider between the power and low voltage side.

I found this one but it is not a 3 gang.

Perhaps you could use one of these?

A divider can be picked up at almost any home improvment store.

Of course you can choose to ignore the requirement for the divider if it doesn't fit into your plans and you know more than others. J/K.

The requirement of the Boxster and the large shop to ignore this is not needed.

Don't forget the fat wad of mattress cash



Just pull the cable out and use a low voltage cut in ring next to the 3 gang box. You will be able to find a triple duplex cover.....I think.

Plan ahead next time

Guys

Im not an expert, but it seems to me some are making this a big deal. I found this divider online for 69 cents. http://www.internet-security-inc.com...ucts_id=538762

I know lowes sells carlon brand so they probably sell it too.
It appears that you remove the face plate slide this in the slot and its done. Less than a minute of work.

Is this correct?
