    I need some help. I'm looking for something and I have no idea what to call it. What I'm looking for is something that is wall-mountable and will enable me to set something inside of it. Think, like... a wall-mountable letter "U". I want to sit something (a MagSafe power adapter) inside the U. Does anyone know if anything like this exists, or what it would be called?

    I tried searching at Home Depot, but I have no idea where to even begin...

    I like your idea. I can have one made and then shipped to you if you want, might take awhile though.

    Just go into the store. You can buy bulk "flashing" which is thin, bendable metal. Then you can do with it what you would like or show the person there who can suggest something better

    For a nicer solution, how about this made for the apple display power adaptor, dont see why it wouldn't work:

    Thanks for all the replies. Ended up getting something similar to this from the Home Depot. About $1.00 each. The MagSafe brick will fit right in the middle, which will be mounted against a wall, hidden under a counter.
