  1. Yes, pretty, but…
    On most images lack of additional a few centimeters if it was necessary to cut the cable or even to plug it into another socket. Number 12 – clearly wrong. The cables must be laid at an angle of 90 degrees. Try to find them later under the plaster when you want to drill a hole in the wall.

  2. I agree with Kurt, no zip ties. Every time you need to stick your hands and arms in to modify the setup for troubleshooting or additions after the initial install. I have scratches, scrapes, and even cuts to show for that effort thanks to zip ties. Velcro all the way.

  3. zipties are teh debbil. I’d have my sidecutters out in very short order and strip all of that off.

    Pretty, yes, but so very hard to modifiy.

    Velcro FTW…

    1. It was used to keep the cables apart when installing and was surely removed when done.
