"Easy labeling for NMC:"

From: Fred White

When wiring a home with NM cable, after removing the sheathing from the cable in the loadcenter cut a 2-3 inch section of the sheathing and write the circuit's identification on it. Then slide the sheathing back on the current carrying conductor(black/red). When circuit breakers are installed leave this "tag" on the wires. It makes labeling the panel a breeze. Leaving the tags on permanently will make circuit identification easy when the loadcenter door is removed for servicing.
