Abstract

A clamp for round cables comprises a metal bracket 1 (Fig. 1) hinged at one edge to the edge of a metal cable carrier 2 (Fig. 2) by a hinge pin 3. On the inside of the carrier 2 is secured a cable trough 4 of firm plastics material, which includes cylindrically shaped retaining troughs for large diameter and small diameter cables 5 and 6, respectively. On the inside of the bracket 1 is secured a similar cable trough 7 of firm plastics material with two cylindrically shaped retaining troughs for large and small cables 8 and 9, respectively. When the bracket 1 is pivoted about the hinge pin to engage the carrier 2, the edges of the retaining troughs of both troughs 4 and 7 press against the cables in the other trough.
