    300.11 B

    Am I allowed to shoot ceiling wire without it being supported at the other end?

    Do you mean an inaccessible area of the ceiling?
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    The section you cited, 300.11(B) clearly requires the independent support wire to be secured at the bottom end. 300.11(B)(2) permits you to connect the bottom end to the ceiling grid. There are clips designed for this purpose that let you secure the bottom end without bowing the grid. These clips can also serve as the required identification of the independent support wire.
