Cable Clamp

A clamp for a bundle of flat cables has a base part 10 which includes a pair of ramp surfaces 12, 14. A pair of legs 16, 18 projects upwardly from the ands of the base part, and a resiliently deformable clip or retainer part 20 engages in slots 22, 24 between the legs.

Clip 20 has bar portions 26, 28 running along opposite sides for cooperation with the ramp parts to clamp ribbon cables 30 therebetween. When cable 30 is tensioned, the clamping action is tightened with a resilient wedging action, as shown.
