The other day I needed to mount an electrical power strip to the back of a cabinet. On the back of my power strip were four screw mounting holes. I could have spent a lot of time drawing a complex layout on the rear of the cabinet, but instead here’s what I did:
I cut an over-sized piece of wax paper and using a black marker, I drew a straight line across the width. Then I stretched the wax paper over the back of the power strip aligning the black line with two screw holes and using an awl, I punched the four holes in the wax paper. I removed the wax paper, trimmed it smaller leaving just the holes and a bit more, aligned and taped it to the back of my cabinet. I drilled the holes, removed the template, inserted the screws and mounted the power strip.Done!
