2.Screw the diffusion box to the sides of the studs at a satisfying working height. Ensure the box projects past the drywall 1/2 in. to allow for the access panels’ consistency.

3.Drill a 2–1/2 in. hole through the top and lowermost plates to access the attic and cellar for cable runs.

4.Install 1–1/2 in. male adapters with locknuts. Cut two 12-in. extents of 2-in. conduit and cement 2-in. male adapters to one end. Drop one from the attic and prod one up from the cellar

5.Hold a low-voltage refurbishing box against the wall between two shafts, so the center of the box is 12 in. above the floor, and draw around the chest and holding wings. Then cut out the entrance with a drywall saw.

6.Use unique staples that hold the CAT-5e cable

7.Fish the cables from the slots into the diffusion box in pairs of coaxial and CAT-5e. Mark the ends of the wires with colored electrical tape for the outlet location. Operate the fish tape down into the outlet stud cavity through a 3/4-in. Hole drilled through the attic plates, then tape both of the marked cable ends to the fish tape. Pull them up into the garret and then push them down to the measurement box. Retire about 3 ft. of extra cable at the measurement box. Cut off the outlet end of the wires about 12 in. past the spaces and mark the lots with more colored tape

8.Install the remodeling box, thus cutting the end of the CAT-5e wire about an inch with the electrician’s scissors and removing back the insulation. Pluck out the internal line and use it as a zipper to peel open about 4 in. of cable. Prune around the base of the insulation with scissors to reduce it. If you cut it with a fork, you might nick the lines.

9.Gently Separate the colored pairs and bend them into the matching terminals. Grab the stripper tool around the coaxial cable with approximately 5/8 in the line projecting past the device. Spin it around the rope several times until the sound of cutting metal stops, then remove the equipment.

10.You may need to define the cutting depths of the little knife saber inside until it strips the cable, as shown below, right. Expose the three layers of the line by cutting with your fingernails to uncover the inner signal wire, white insulation, and metal shielding.

Coaxial cable connector and jack. Lift on the F-connector until the white insulation is tight against the back of the connector, and again crimp it on with a crimping tool. Snip off the copper wire, so it discharges 1/8 in. past the end of the F-connector.

11.Snap the jacks into the cover plate. Ground the pane, Naps in the telecommunication module and cable splitter, and organizes the phone and coaxial lines within the box for easy linking using loose-fitting Velcro straps. Leave an extra circle in the main coaxial cable line from the street for a future password exponent — route coaxial cables in from the box’s cover for susceptible splitter hookups.

12.Punch down the main phone line into the telecommunications module. Crumple an F-connector to the main coaxial cable and pull taut it onto the center splitter port. Crimp F-connectors onto the ‘in’ coaxial wires and screw them to the splitter terminals. Cap any unused terminals with terminating resistors. Strip the CAT-5e cables, punch them into the terminals on the voice and data module, and then clip off the additional wires with the electrician’s scissors.
