Wire Clamp

I am finishing a room in my basement and I forgot to clamp the exit wire on two of my receptacles to the stud! I remembered to clamp the entry wire. I don't have enough slack in my exit wire to move it to the stud where it should have been clamped. What options do I have to remedy this situation?

Welcome to the forums.

There are a few things you can use. One is called a Colorado Jim.

The only problem is that they don't come singly. You need to buy a pack. Spares are always good to have around. Both available at places like depot as well as electrical supply houses. If you know any electricians.... ask him for a few.

Add a piece of stud and lay it flat in the wall. Staple the cable to the wood.
