ripped sheathing

Any other options for repairing a tear in romex jacket besides installing a junction box or new stretch of cable?? Thanks

If the insulation on the conductors inside the cable is not damaged, then tape up the jacket with some quality electrical tape (3M). I would not have a problem with this, but some inspectors may. If tape is unacceptable, replacing the cable is the only option.

Or installing an accesible J box.
