1. A wall plate for mounting about a wall opening of a wall in a wall structure for passing of an electrical cable from inside the wall structure through the wall opening to outside the wall structure, the wall plate comprising:

  • a support plate having an inner surface for mounting against the wall and about the wall opening, a support plate opening formed in the support plate for alignment with the wall opening, the support plate opening having opposed side edges and opposed end edges, a cable support extension mounted to the inner surface of the support plate at the support plate opening and forming a cable passage extending from the inner surface of the support wall plate for projecting through and beyond the wall opening and into the wall structure, the cable support extension having a wall sloped with respect to the wall plate and that defines the cable passage oriented at an angle with respect to the support plate in registration with the support plate opening, such that the cable support extension extends through the wall opening and into the wall structure so that an electrical cable can extend from within the wall structure through the cable support extension and through the support plate opening and the cable support extension forms a sight barrier on the inner surface of the support plate when viewing from outside the wall structure through the wall opening for blocking the view of the inside of the wall structure.
