Quick code clarification

So when running romex, can romex be run in notches on a joist if a nail guard is installed? Do I have to staple the romex? I could just look this up in the code book but I need a quick answer.

Quick code clarification

should be stapled within 8" of entering/leaving a box.
should be minimum of 1 1/4" from the stud/joist face otherwise a plate is required.

Your local code might have different rules. confirm by calling a local electrician, or wait for another reply.
Go ahead and apply for a variance, those guys at City Hall can use a good laugh.
