Rubber plug

A rubber plug has been included with the ADC-V724/724X at the base of the mount. This rubber plug should only be used if you are mounting directly over a hole in the wall. The rubber plug will provide a seal to prevent water from entering the hole in the wall behind the camera.

In all other installations, please remove the rubber plug. Removing the rubber plug will allow you to route the power cable through the mouse hole without bending or breaking the cable.
