Running wire


How would you connect these two j boxes with NM? I would prefer to go right in between from one KO to another, but that doesn't look like an option since the strain reliefs won't fit.

Would I run the wire in a loop underneath or behind?

I tried looking for 4 gang steel j boxes that side mount, but had no luck.

How about a "conduit nipple."

Basically, a short threaded piece of pipe.

Use a chase nipple and individual conductors.
