Shrink Clamp

      Bands of heat shrinkable tubing can be used to form non-slip
attachments between cathode ray tube and components in a video
display.

                            (Image Omitted)

      A band of material, such a 3M-EPS-200, having an inside
diameter of 1.1 inches and a width of 5/8" will hold the deflection
yoke as rigidly as the screw-clamp and hot glue combination used with
today's assembly procedures.

      Using the same material (but increasing the width to 1-1/8")
provides attachment of the socket to the CRT, see Fig. 1.  This
improvement can best be realized when the socket is physically
attached to the "video card".
