Strain Relief Cable Anchor

This individual anchor is mounted or demounted without using tools. It includes a clamp which is hand releasable and locks automatically when inserted in a receiving support.

A cable 27 in Fig. C is attached to clamp 19 with straps 26 co-operating with strap holes 25. Two groups of serrations 24 shaped to match cable 27 insure a good grip on it.

The position of clamp 19 in anchor support 10 having an inverted U cross section is shown in Fig. A. Openings 16, one for each cable to be anchored, are formed in support 10. Their opposing walls 17 fit into grooves 18 of clamp 19. Member 20, an integral part of clamp 19, presses down on front edge 21 of opening 16 as seen in Fig. B. Protrusion 22 of member 20 engages the front of support 10, locking clamp 19 into place.

Extension 23 of member 20 extends beyond the front of support 10. When deflected by finger pressure towards the body of clamp 19, the latter is unlocked permitting its withdrawal.
