Simple Plate attachment

This article relates to a plate, which can be fixed to a structure, and that allow the attachment of a route. All types of routes with a diameter <50mm can be attached directly to the plate using a tie-wrap.

The plate can be fixed to the structure with 2 or 4 fasteners (rivets, Hi-lite or Lockbolt) or even glued

According to a first assembly process, a harness can be attached directly on the plate, using a tie-wrap. Multiples tie-wrap attachment hole are provided in the plate, with different positions and orientation, in order to facilitate this attachment.

3. A pin is inserted into Quick Tie to prevent hook detachment.

4. Harness is installed and attached with the integrated tie wrap (tie-wrap type tongue and grove). The pin cannot be removed once harness is installed.

5. Using the holes in the plate, another tie-wrap can be inserted through the plate and wrapped around the harness. This ensures compliance to the standards, and a constant pressure on the harness. This tie-wrap is installed using a calibrated tie-wrap gun.
