Abstract

As illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2, a tubular coil wire assembly 1 is fastened to a head arm 2 by means of a clamping device which includes a clip 3 incorporating a hinged element 4. The clip assembly, which includes locking legs 5, snaps onto the arm to hold the coil wire in a retention groove 6 and retains the coil wire against the arm.
