When I'm running my wires through an open joist bay, it's incredibly frustrating to try to keep my wires "just so" without prematurely nailing them, especially when I know there are more to follow.
So throwing a few of these stackers up before hand goes a long way towards keeping the order (and my inner peace). Simply pull the wire, tuck it in, and it stays untwisted and unsagged. Follow it with more wire. Restack it into another compartment if that ends up being necessary.
Only then, when I'm all done, do I gather my slack in a few places and tack the wire down for good measure.
As an additional measure, if you've ever noticed how supple a vacuum cleaner cord becomes after a few minutes use, you can appreciate that our wires actually get quite warm with prolonged use. These stackers promote airflow around the wires in an uninsulated bay, or at very least prevent stacked wires from combining their heat.
Also, the length of the end of the plastic piece to where the first wire lays is beyond the clearance required by code, so that saves the step of measuring where you put your wires.
The cable stackers don't hold the wire securely (without allowing any movement), however, so you'll still need to hit a cable staple before and after turns, junctions, and boxes, to secure the wire. The wire stays in the stacker, but can be slid back and forth without much resistance.
I have enough of these left over that I'm going to run a few Cat5 wires along the opposite joist; the stackers are able to hold most any wire as thick as phone wire.
I ran 2000ft Cat-6, 1000ft 14 guage 2-wire speaker wire, 500ft 4-wire speaker wire, and 500ft RG6 in my new home build. In several places I had multiple cables running together - the 3M Cable Stacker worked perfectly to keep several cables stacked on-center of 2x4 studs. While this product is designed for use on 2x4 wall studs, I also found them very helpful running multiple cables in joist cavities.
After running most of my cables, I went back after and added a few more Cable Stackers to help keep bundles tidy. By the time I was done, my bundles used stackers 2-3ft apart.
I would say the only downside to this product was the cost. They aren't cheap, but they are effective. In some cases I had 6-7 cables stacked, and I could have easily added a couple more. Given the cost, I would only use these for 3 or more cables. I'd give 5 stars if they weren't so expensive.
I wouldn't buy them again, they don't attach well.
Get the red Gardner Benders instead. And hey, GB, since I'm plugging you, why don't you make a second or third color stacker for folks like me who wanta be more organized?

Work much better than the green plastic, otherwise identical, cable stackers that these 3M cable stackers are replacing. Read morePublished 1 month ago by arecf
