Component Mounting Clip

A component mounting clip for retaining components, such as transisto firmly against a mounting board is shown in the figure. The mounting board 1 is provided with a rectangular hole 2 on each side of a component 3 which is to be mounted on the board 1. The clip 4, which is formed from a strip of spring steel, has a short leg 5 and long leg 6.

The component 3 is held firmly against the board by locating the clip 4 so that the short leg 5 has its foot located in one hole and by pressing the 'barbed' end of the long leg 6 through the other hole. The foot on the short leg and the barbed end of the long leg are wider than the holes 2. The strip of spring steel is shaped to apply appropriate pressure to the component 3. The clip may be removed from the holes by compressing the barbed end of leg 6.
