Have you ever seen a listed romex staple?
I haven't.

UL doesn't list Pipe Clamps, Romex Staples, J-Nails, Strut Clamps etc.

I just checked a box of GB staples, and a box of 'King' staples, and there's no UL label on either box.

edit to add:

Yes, I checked out Briscon, and they do have UL staples and fastners within their products on their website.

Guess it all depends on brands, areas, and .....cost!!!
