Abstract

Clamp 10 securely holds a component, such as capacitor 11, despite variations in size of the component on a mounting plate or printed circuit board 12. Clamp 10 may be of metal or other resilient material, and includes one or more formed fingers 13 which crowd component 11 towards side wall 14. One or more tabs 15 extend through apertures 16 in the mounting plate 12, while flange 17 receives screw 18.
