How to attach the cap to the cable box

Attach the cable duct to the wall - this is how it works

It is not always possible to lay cables under plaster. A cable duct is a good and inexpensive alternative. We have all the fastening tips for you in this article.

Fasten the cable duct to the wall without drilling

You don't have to be a home improvement professional to securely attach a cable duct to the wall.

  • There are self-adhesive cable ducts in specialist shops that you can attach to various surfaces without the hassle of drilling.
  • When buying, make sure that the adhesive surface is not too small, so that the back later rests well against the wall and does not bend.
  • Saw the cable duct to the required length.
  • Then peel off the protective film of the adhesive tape and press the cable duct firmly onto the surface.
  • Make sure that you place the canal straight as it is hardly possible to correct it later.
  • If you want to attach the channel to tiles, you must first remove dirt and grease from the surface. Use lukewarm water with washing-up liquid or silicone remover for this. The surface must then be completely dry.
  • If the cable duct is to be used on an uneven surface such as If, for example, woodchip sticks, use additional assembly adhesive.
  • Any excess glue on the edges can be wiped off with a lint-free cloth.
  • Let the glue dry well before inserting the cables.

Fasten the cable duct to the wall with screws

You can also secure a cable duct with screws.

  • Many cable ducts already have predefined drill holes.
  • After you've cut the duct to the correct length, drill the appropriate holes in the wall.
  • You can then insert dowels and fasten the duct with the screws.
