# of Romex cables per staple?
I am rewiring my house after a copper theft, special thanks to Vermont Mutual for denying the claim, thus forcing me to be my own electrician::>

I bought a great book from Home Depot that gives a simplified explanation of the NEC, but there are some items missing.

Can multiple romex cables be secured by the same staple, or must there only be one cable per staple??? I am aware that I can't bundle or enclose the cable run without de-rating the current rating of the cables.

I also have a few other simple and minor questions-but have posted them separately so that the title of the message accurately reflects it's contents.

The package for the staples will have the sizes and quantities of cables allowed under the staple.
