Re: How strict should my Cat5 installation be?

The problem is that if you manage to feed mains into low voltage cabling things will get both dangerous and expensive. Connect mains to the public telephone network and you'd best consider yourself lucky if all you get is a large bill.

Either get used to it or use some surface mount boxes for the data outlets.

But a word of warning. When using cable ties to secure Cat5 cable, pull the ties tight *gently* - not so hard that the cable is crushed.

Re-usable velcro type cable ties are good for Cat5. Coupled with cable tie bases screwed to the approriate building surfaces thay are handy for running Cat5 without having to resort to conduit or trunking.
