    Steve,

    As you may gather from some of the responses we need more information to answer the question. And don't let some sarcasm dissuade you.

    My guess would be to keep it from being damaged either when the wall is finish is applied or if it's exposed and not dangling. Certainly it's allowed to be fished and where it's not secured.
