Can I use Multi-Cable Staples to run wire horizontally?

Can I use Multi-Cable Staples to run wire from post to post?

I am running 5 or 6 runs of wire in my attic and thought I would use the Multi-Cable Staples to give myself more room.

Here's a picture of what it looks like:

They definitely seem strong enough to handle the weight, but I've never seen them used in this manner and am not sure it's up to code.

I also do see anything on their website or the packaging that says anything about this:SnapSHOT Multi-Cable Staple, Red, NM (flat and round), Coaxial and Data/CAT V, (100/pk) | Gardner Bender

As long as the spacing requirements are met and the cable is not subject to damage you should be good.
