Abstract

A one-piece cable clamp having a semi-U-shaped configuration is adapted to hold jacketed cables in place relative to a frame member. In Fig. 1 it is seen that cable clamp 10 has a T-shaped end 11 which passes through a slot 21 in frame member 20. The T-shaped end 11 in situ is orthogonal to slot 21, as seen in Fig. 2.

Cable Clamp

A one-piece cable clamp having a semi-U-shaped configuration is adapted to hold jacketed cables in place relative to a frame member. In Fig. 1 it is seen that cable clamp 10 has a T-shaped end 11 which passes through a slot 21 in frame member 20. The T-shaped end 11 in situ is orthogonal to slot 21, as seen in Fig. 2.

Clamp 10 is held in place by a single screw 30, which threads into tapped hole 15 in shank 16 (Fig. 3) of clamp 10. When clamp 10 is secured in place by tightening screw 30, cable 40 is captured between frame 20 and clamp 10, and held against relative movement. Cable 40, in fact, has a portion forced into slot 21 (Fig. 1), and this increases the resistance to movement of cable 40.
