Wiring Heat Tape Q

    Okay, so first off, I am considering building a rack system for my leos, even though my mom thinks I won't like it when I am done, and I would like to use heat tape, but I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to wire multiple sections of heat tape to the same cord? I currently have UTHs for my leo tanks, and I hate having all of the cordsbunched up behind my display stand, and I currently have five tanks on one wall, with all of their cords for heat and light, plus a fogger for my skink, somehow plugged into one outlet, which I HATE, and not just because it is a big tangled mess. I would like to get at least my four leos all on one cord for light, which I have figured out already, and if possible, one for heat.

    I have seen videos and pics were long strips of heat tape are wound through the shelves, but the way I plan on building and displaying my rack, I won't be able to do this. I also don't want to have to buy so much extra tape just to do so...
