Hi everyone. I'm trimming out the structured wiring in my new construction house. I have two thick HDMI cables in my wall from Blue Jeans Cable that I'm attaching to Leviton HDMI QuickPorts (female-female coupler). Due to the difficulty in bending the thick HDMI cables in the wall, I purchased 8" HDMI "Port Savers" from Monoprice to make the curve needed to connect to the wall plate. The connection from the Port Saver to the HDMI QuickPort is solid enough, but the connection between the Port Saver and in-wall cable is not, and I'm concerned the connection will fall out after I put it back in the wall.
-Any suggestions on how to hold these two cable ends together for years?
My current plan is to use 1" heat shrink tubing over the connection. However, I have little experience with heat shrink and HDMI.
-Do I need a heat gun for a piece of tubing that large, or can I use a lighter or a blow torch?
-Will the heat needed to shrink the tubing be damaging to the HDMI cables or connections?
-Most importantly, will the heat shrink be able to hold the connections together permanently?
Any input appreciated. Thanks!
