Cable and Tube Retainers

Retaining elements to hold wires or tubing are incorporated into these fasteners that engage panel holes, mounting flanges, or panel edges.

The fasteners are front mounting, and require no access to the back of the panel. One spring clip can often replace several loose parts. Because they fasten through spring tension, they compensate for normal tolerance variations and misalignment, and will not vibrate loose.
