2 Romex Wires to a staple???

I was wondering if you could use 2 or 3 romex wires 12-2 (with ground) to a staple.. (were using the hammer in type)... or is it a strict one wire to one staple rule...

Thanks in advance!

You can run two wires under a staple. Keep them flat on the stud and each other. NO stapling on edge.

That was the exact question I was going to post. It pays to read the forum first. Thanks

I advise that you use "stack-its", which is a plastic block with an attached nail. Smash the nail into the stud/joist, and "clip" the cables into the slots.

This product was designed specificaly for the purpose you need.

Good Luck, & Learn & Enjoy from the Experience!!!!!!!!
