HellermannTyton Announces First-Of-Its-Kind “Wedge Clip”
New clip attaches quickly to beams and rails without drilling.
MILWAUKEE – HellermannTyton has developed a heavy-duty nylon edge clip designed to route cables along frames or rails in vertical or horizontal applications. The clip achieves high extraction force via an integrated wedge mechanism that slides along an internal stepped incline until snug against the mounting surface.
Inside the clip is a 3M™ VHB™ (Very High Bond) adhesive pad, which, according to 3M, creates a virtually indestructible “weld.” This enables installers to place the Wedge Clip into position without worrying about it moving or falling off prior to fastening. The combination of adhesive and the clip’s vice-like compression result in incredible extraction force without the need to drill holes in the work surface. The Wedge Clip is made of a proprietary PA66 blend to resist impact, heat and UV exposure. It is offered in three sizes to accommodate material thicknesses up to 0.51 inch (13 mm).
“Customers have described these unique applications as a long-term challenge for them. The Wedge Clip is the perfect response,” said HellermannTyton Product Manager Missy DeBord. “It doesn’t merely solve a problem; it eliminates the need for additional hardware and costly, time-consuming drilling.”
HellermannTyton has earned an exceptional reputation for heavy duty edge clips. This latest addition builds on that tradition in a completely new form factor.
