What size wire bundles require double lace?
How is the double lace started?
How are laced cable groups bound together?
When cable supports are used in equipment as shown in figure 2-48, spot ties are used to secure the
conductor groups if the supports are more than 12 inches apart. The spot ties are made by wrapping the
cord around the group as shown in figure 2-49. To finish the tie, use a clove hitch followed by a square
knot with an extra loop. The free ends of the cord are then trimmed to a minimum of 3/8 inch.
