Re: Stapeling coax to scirting board what size staples

Well my internal VM cable is 6mm diameter, measured with calipers, if that helps.

So maybe something like this ...

It is bad form to staple coax to a skirting board, it can sometimes damage the cable. The best thing to do is use stick on trunking, just above the skirting board, you can get some which is much better looking than bare cable. Try Screwfix or B&Q.

Totally agree -I bought trunking from Wickes and used it around the house - looks better/few quid/an hours work ... ZVNK ...
