I need to run a TV cable from the inside of my garage through the finished
ceiling in the garage (sheetrock), into the attic.
I understand that there is a problem with making holes in walls or ceilings
in the garage, leading to living quarters or to the attic.
How can I stay within code while running this cable through the ceiling in
my garage? Do I need special fittings or can I just knock a hole in the
ceiling, run the cable and patch up the hole around the cable with patching
Just make the hole about the size of the cable with a drill bit and run
the cable through the hole. Seal the hole with silicone if it makes
you feel better. No inspector I have ever had has ever failed me for
anything done with a coax TV cable no matter what.
Hope this helps,
