OK... Here's another "Do You..."

Do you use plastic "cable straps" or metal staples? Insulated or non-...?,

What do you use for larger cable, say a 6-3w/G or an SER ?

i use viking #100 insulated staples, i will not use uninsulated for a variety of reasons,being the state of Mass. state motto; we have a law for EVERYTHING! has an ammended NEC forbidding them.

larger NM gets plastic 2-nail straps which can be had , as you know, for round or flat cable.

i try to stay away from metal....
