Placing Phone and Cable Outlets

Placing phone and cable jacks is exactly like placing wall outlets and switches. You’ll notice that when placing jacks, the object is automatically “tracked” to the wall segment, making accurate placement simple. The phone or cable jack is displayed with dimensions as you drag to position it along the wall, which indicate the distance from the center of the jack to the nearest wall or other electrical component.
