fastening multiples wires


Do they make or what do use to clamp/fasten/staple multiple wire together, say three or four 12/2's?

you do not do this at junction boxes. each wire should be stapled individually. but going into the panel you can buy bundle supports that is made for this purpose. (not staples)

Most staples for the correct cable size are only for 1-2 cables. For multiple cables something like the 3M Stak-it could be used.
