The cable to be held by the retainer is inserted in the angled slot opening (2) between the wire portions (3) and (4), forming the opening of the retainer. The only way the retained cable or wire can be removed is to angle it with respect to the vertical so that it will pass through the cable entrance (2).

Cable Retainer

      The improved wire or cable holder (1) is shown in schematic
form in Figure 1.  The cable entrance (2) is at approximately a 45~
angle with the cross channel direction, as indicated.  The cable to
be held by the retainer is inserted in the angled slot opening (2)
between the wire portions (3) and (4), forming the opening of the
retainer.  The only way the retained cable or wire can be removed is
to angle it with respect to the vertical so that it will pass through
the cable entrance (2).

      The retainer is a single one-piece wire form held by a fastener
through a provided clearance hole (5).

      The retainer mounts to a swing arm and rotates 180~ when the
drawer is pulled out for service.
