Abstract

This flat cable holder eliminates the need for cable raceways in electronic systems. Flat cables l are assembled to latticework 2 by means of ties 3 or other suitable retention means. Latticework 2 may be molded from suitable plastic material with integral ties 3 and mounting holes 4. In situations where cables are required to be routed perpendicular to the general plane of the latticework 2, the region of the required bend can be reduced in cross section to provide a hinge point 5 and facilitate the bend.
