Surface mount box for coaxial cable?


I have seen some phone jack box that's raised that you can surface mount onto sheetrock or baseboards.

Is there the same sort of thing for coaxial cable? I searched around and couldn't find one.

Yes, I know Menards carries them. They are empty boxes and you buy the actual jacks and snap them in. P&S makes them.

There available but why would you want to?
Going to look a whole lot better and not look like an after thought if it's run through the wall.

Because I don't care how it looks it's a newly acquired apartment that I am tidying up for rental and since I am running the coaxial cable along the top of the baseboard already (which also look like an after thought), that's the best I can do given the time budget I am allocating to this, about 30 minutes. No time to cut holes in wall fishing through studs and patch, sand paint etc.

Do a key word search on wire molding.
Lowes and HD both have a whole section near the electrical dept. with the moulding and outlets.

Wire Mold has a nice selection of surface mount boxes and conduit. I used them extensively in offices to corral computer cables.
