Use plastic cable staples to fasten cables. Choose staples sized to match the cables. Stack-It staples hold up to four 2-wire cables; ¾” staples for 12/2, 12/3, and all 10-gauge cables; ½” staples for 14/2, 14/3, or 12/2 cables; coaxial staples for anchoring television and data cables; bell wire staples for attaching telephone cables.


Pigtailing is done mainly to avoid connecting multiple wires to one terminal, which is a code violation. If you are pigtailing to a grounding clip in a metal box, you may find it easier to attach one end of the wire to the grounding clip before you attach the other end to the other wires.


Label the cables entering each box to indicate their destinations. In boxes with complex wiring configurations, also tag the individual wires to make final hookups easier. After all cables are installed, your rough-in work is ready to be reviewed by the electrical inspector.


This surface‑mounted receptacle rated for 240 volts has a hard plastic box that can be installed on concrete or block walls. Surface‑mounted receptacles are often found in basements and utility rooms.
