Does anyone here that does romex work use the new clips that are available to secure romex? Sorry I don't have the brand name and nomenclature, but after I saw one of those white plastic 'multigang' thingamajigs at Home Depot, I checked my code book, and it didn't require "staples", but also included other fittings "designed and installed so as not to damage the cable."
Considering my experience in burn't out wiring at ceiling light outlets, it seems to me that such a clip wouldn't prevent the continued roasting and carbonizing of the cable, whereas staples apparently press the cable against the wood enough to act as a decent heat sink.
I'm just wondering if any region of the country is using such devices, or if there is some trade, or inspector, resistance to the use of such things.
