Understanding the Basics
Before diving into the installation process, it's crucial to understand the fundamentals. Outdoor pillar-mounted TVs require careful planning to ensure a tidy appearance while maintaining safety standards. We'll explore two popular methods: using wire casings and strategically placing a plug near the pillar.
Method 1: Wire Casings for a Sleek Finish
Step 1: Gather Your Tools
- Wire casings
- Screws and anchors
- Cable ties

Step 2: Measure and Plan
Begin by measuring the distance from the power source to the outdoor pillar. This step is crucial for determining the amount of wire casing required. Plan the route, taking into account any obstacles or corners.
Step 3: Install the Wire Casings
- Secure the wire casings along the planned route, ensuring they are firmly attached to the wall or any surface.

Step 2: Professional Installation
- Seek the assistance of a qualified electrician to install the outdoor-rated electrical box.
- Connect the box to the main power source, ensuring compliance with electrical codes and safety standards.
Step 3: Cable Management
- Once the plug is installed, use cable ties and clips to secure the cables along the path to the outdoor pillar.
- Make sure the cables are well-organized and protected from the elements.
