Introduction: How to Hide Any Wire Along a Carpeted Wall

About: Christian, MECE student, amateur guitarist, occasional pipe smoker, human, probably not dead. yep.

this instructable demonstrates how to hide a wire inside a wall with carpeting. it does not involve any carpentry, plumbing, or dog breeding at all. it is especially useful for making rooms look nice, making sure cleaning ladies/ moms/ girlfriends/ wives/ insane llamas don't rip up wires in an attempt to "clean up".

Step 1: Placing the Wire

first, you will need to find where your wire will go. try to find a place where there are not many turns, because that will make it harder. if it is going to go all around a room, you will need quite a long wire, so prepare for that.

Step 2: Pushing Wire In

for actually putting in the wire, I found it was best to use a broken pencil. it worked better than a screwdriver or anything else I tried. first, you hold the wire on one side. then, you move away from the hand holding the wire, pushing the wire in with the pencil. you may have to go over it a few times. and try not to damage your house, this may not work.

Step 3: All Done!!!!

um.......ur done.

    Altogether, a good, simple instructable. The pictures are original and they show what you're doing in each step. The bulk of the text explains what you're doing and why. Your lack of capitalization was distracting, though.

    As PetervG already mentioned, the title is a bit off the mark. If you can rename an instructable, how about "How to hide a wire along a wall"?

    Lastly, middle box == "WHAT? HOW? HUH?"

    Simple.... in Firefox, go to "View" and then "Page Style".... Then select "No Page Style" and you can read all the comment things... lol, took me a minute to figure out...

    hey... since you seem to know about page styles n' crap like that, have you ever had that thing happen to you where all the formatting and pictures disappear from a website (in firefox, of course) and it's just text?
