Round off both square cut ends of the tongue with a file to form a blunt point. Drill a small hole (about 2/10 inch) in both ends of the tongue to enable a cable to be looped through. Push the tongue into the wall and feed it through until it appears at the other end.

How do you hide CCTV cables?
The easiest way to hide security camera wires outside is to make them blend into the environment. Staple the cables to the walls with a staple gun and paint the wires the same color as the walls. In doing so, the security camera wires will be more unnoticeable by the intruders from a distance.
Can you put electricity cable in a wall cavity?
Answer: Cables such as pvc/pvc insulated and sheathed cables should not be run in cavity walls. Mineral insulated copper sheathed cables may be judged by the installation designer to be suitable for such a location.
How long should a drill bit be for a cavity wall?
In most cases you will need to drill all the way through. That will determine the length of drill bit that you need. Standard drill bits are around 3-4″ in length and in most cases will do the job for things like joists. For something like a door frame or a cavity wall, you will need to buy a longer length bit.
How can I run Ethernet cable in my house without drilling?
The closest option would be a Powerline adapter. You could use a moca adapter over coax but it could cause problems with TV boxes if you have satellite or cable TV. Get a good adapter as all are not created equal. I’ve installed TP-Link AV2000 and AV1200 series adapters in some large houses and they work well.
What drill bit do you use for brick?
Drill bits that can drill through concrete are called masonry bits. They are also good for drilling through brick and stone. Drill bits with a tungsten carbide tip are the strongest; when it comes to solid concrete, the sharper the better. Masonry bits cut holes through concrete in two steps.
