Abstract

When leading electrical ribbon cable or the like 10 from an aperture 11 in a machine frame 12, it is desirable to clamp the cable in some manner to prevent cable abrasion from occurring due to the cable hitting the edge of the aperture. The clamp-together cable clamp illustrated in the figure and described below permits easy coupling and uncoupling thereof without tools while holding the ribbon cable assembly firmly to the frame to inhibit such abrasion or the like.
