Flexible Cable Braket Design to Hold Head Wire Tube

      Disclosed is a design of the flexible cable braket used in a
Hard Disk Drive (HDD) which can hold the head wire effectively
without using any additional parts.

      The Figure shows the braket design and its implementation
method.  The feature of this design is as follows:
  o  To have slits perpendicular to the head wire direction to hold
      them.
  o  To have the stiffener behind the braket to set the slit,
      described above, tightly by using its plastic reaction force.
  o  To slide the head wire in the slit to hold them.

The merits of this design are described below:
  o  More tolerance about the head wire tube diameter.
  o  More tolerance about the head wire tube length.
  o  Less expensive braket design.
