I'm wanting to add a few brush plates (https://www.bunnings.co.nz/deta-white-brush-wall-cover-plate_p00322381) in behind some wall mounted TVs to conceal HDMI cables etc 

 

What is the best way to install the flush box required to go behind these plates?

Easiest for non-mains electrical is to use a bracket like these https://www.bunnings.co.nz/deta-plaster-clip-bracket-20pk_p00287370

You don't need to locate it on a stud, and makes it easier for bringing in thick/stiff cables like rg6 or HDMI

For a flush box find the stud, cut a hole to slide the flush box in and screw to stud.

 

The electrical wholesalers will have bigger recessed box's that can clip to the gib as another option

I personally hate those c-clips.

Go to your wholesaler and ask for a "Wally box" or "easifix box". Same idea, no stud required, but just locks on with spring loaded tags.

We called them "f*** up boxes". Cos if you f**cked up cutting your hole one of these would fix it.

If you're feeding a bunch of AV cables through the back of an easi-fix box, then you'll need to cut bigger holes into the back of it, as they tend to have fairly small cable entry holes
