"S<> Greetings. I'm trying to search for what I need for a small
"S<> project, but I can't seem to find the right terminology, plus, if
"S<> I give a description of what I'm doing, possibly you good people
"S<> will have a better solution.
"S<> Nearly a year ago I had DirecTV installed, and the installer
"S<> drilled a hole through the siding in through the drywall to feed
"S<> in the coax. He explained that with a basic install, nothing
"S<> fancy can be expected. Well, at the time it wasn't really a
"S<> problem, even though it's the front of the house. I just removed
"S<> some large bushes from in front of the house and find that the
"S<> coax is completely exposed and hanging from the hole that was
"S<> drilled, across the ground, and runs around the corner of the
"S<> house to the back where the splitter is. First, it looks ugly,
"S<> second, anyone who had a malicious thought could snip that coax,
"S<> and there goes my directv.
"S<> I don't really want to push the coax back through the sealed hole
"S<> in order to run it through a conduit, along with some sort of
"S<> housing that could screw into the siding where the hole is, and
"S<> I've got the problem solved with flexible split conduit, but
"S<> can't seem to find a housing or something with a 90 degree angle
"S<> to place over the hole that can be connected to the flexible
"S<> conduit. What would something like that be called?
Perhaps look in the Electrical Department for surface mount coverings?
Know there is flat (about 1«" wide by ¬" thick) and round (has a split
byt getting round coax in it may be a challenge). I'm not sure how well
would hold up outside.
Another option might be wooden moldings. Many are hollow. Paint before
installation to seal all surfaces. Pre-drill so won't split during
nailing/screwing into side of house.
