The spare conductors of a multiconductor cable should be laced separately, and then tied to active
conductors of the cable with a few telephone hitches. When two or more cables enter an enclosure, each
cable group should be laced separately. When groups are parallel to each other, they should be bound
together at intervals with telephone hitches (figure 2-47).
