    Evening chaps, anyone able to recommend a tool to tack down t&e cable?

    Clipping cables in awkward places is a right faff.

    Regards.

    I have recently been looking for an option, but not for ease of clipping for compliance reasons.

    Not normal staples you understand.
    Still, I agree for the most part and have never previously considered one until the latest regs.

    Today I have spent quite a bit of time in a loft correcting various wiring issues, from a 1970's bungalow. Mostly the usual things like unenclosed choc blocks, etc.

    But I also noticed the original twin & earth wiring had been stapled to the roof trusses. In some cases the staples were too far in and crushing the cable. In some cases the cables had got pulled e.g. at 90 degrees to the last staple, and the staple was really digging into the outer sheath. While I didn't find any that had actually cut through to the inner copper, I thought one or two looked not far off.

    It was enough to make me think I'd never want to use staples for clipping wiring to timber.

    The only one I have seen is the Arrow T72 which uses an insulated staple system. The staples look a little large though and are made for two round cables rather than flat twin cable.
