Low Voltage Wiring Video
Using the wrong fastener or staple on low voltage wire can result in a short. This type wire has a thinner insulation than other electrical wiring. The wrong fastener can cut right through the wire.
Low voltage wiring is used for door bells, telephone wiring, computer wiring, thermostat wiring, etc. Be sure to use the right staples to protect the wire. The old fashion staples with a cardboard protector will work great with this size wire.
A hand stapler is available with a special tip and special cable staples designed just for low voltage wires. The staples are rounded to prevent damaging the cable. Be sure to use them on your next wiring project.
