The WIT-XXA-01 series of self-mounted cable ties have an arrowhead design and snap quickly into a predrilled hole. Providing a permanent locking method of bundling cables or wires, the cable tie can accommodate a panel thickness of 0.062 inch and mounting hole diameters from 0.187 to 0.252 inch. The ties are made of a Nylon material. The arrowhead ties are available in 18- or 50-lb strengths. Using only one of these ties replaces the need for a cable tie and flat tie holder assembly.

Multiple styles and sizes

Designed to handle bundles of cables with diameters of .0125 to 0.250 inch, the Half "U" and Dual Half "U" Routing Clips (HURCS and DHURCS) have a unique base that can be mounted to a board using a screw or rivet. The HURCS routes one set of cables while the DHURCS can route parallel cables. Available in three sizes and molded from Nylon material, the clips' parts are not releasable as the screw or rivet must be removed in order for the cables to be released. Richco Inc.
