I was called by a Mr. Applehumber in Santa Clarita, California. They were selling their homes and moving up to Colorado. After the Realtor checked their beautiful home, she requested a huge laundry list of repairs. Jim wanted a cable plate repaired.
This post shows the six steps on how to install a cable wall plate kit.
