How to Paint Garage Bedroom - Part 3 of 19 - Move Data and TV Cables

Fig.1 All the cables
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Claw hammer
Drywall saw or Razor knife

Mrs. Dee wanted to upgrade her bedroom/office. She wanted the bedroom wall fixed, new baseboards to replace the missing ones, new ceiling and walls painted and she needed this job done as fast as possible. Her new tenet would arrive in three days.

This post shows the seven steps to place the coaxial cable at a lower location on the wall.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows a white coaxial wire, an old black cable television, and a flat data communication cable that need to be brought down just above the air conditioner vent.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the removal of the old black coaxial cable no longer working and was pulled from the laundry side of the wall and disposed of in the trash can.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the data communication cable and the new white coaxial cable.

Step 4: Take a square and draw a straight line from the center of hole to the A/C vent. Fig.4 shows a claw hammer and a razor knife cutting the wall to move the wires down. This takes some time so be patient. A drywall saw is also an alternative choice. After the job is done throw away the metal knife blade.
