    Both a noun and a verb, refers to joining two or more cables together in parallel. Before the advent of multi-cable, lengths of 12/3 SO cables were "bundled" together for each lighting position. Today, up to five 6-ckt. multi-cables are "hodded" for each truss. The cables can be "loomed" using gaffer's tape, electrical tape, zip-ties, bundling tape, or the industry favorite since the 1930s, friction tape.

    A hod is also known as a bundle, loom, or tripe.

    Hodding cables together without appropriate ampacity de-rating can cause problems with temperature rise in the hod, especially if the cables are fully loaded.
