Is that clamp listed for Qty (1) 12AWG/2 cable and Qty (1) 12AWG/3 cable?
Some clamps are listed for Qty (2) 14AWG/2 NM cables, but not for Qty (1) 14AWG/3 cable and Qty (1) AWG/2 cable, nor for Qty (2) of anything larger, the listing for these will say something like:
"application: Indoors Only. Fits NM Cable: #14/2, #12/2, #12/3, AWG or 2 #14/2 AWG or Flex Cord .300 to .560 inches diameter 3/8" (1/2ko). Type: Twin Screw. In a dry location, use to connect nonmetallic sheathed cable to a steel outlet box or other metal enclosure. Miscellaneous: 3/8" size fits 1/2" knockout.".
I've never seen a municipal inspector kick about it, and electricians commonly clamp Qty (2) of 12AWG/x cables in them, but doing so does technically violate the listing for these clamps...
