Determine the least-visible spot for the PowerBridge's upper receptacle box, then use a stud finder to make sure that you have a clear shot to the bottom of the stud bay. Place the receptacle template in this spot and trace around it. Use a drywall saw to cut out the wallboard along the template's outline.
