Original Press Release:
PEM(R) Self-Clinching Cable-Tie Hooks Introduced By PEM(R) Fastening Systems
DANBORO, PA, January 14, 2002 -- New PEM self-clinching cable-tie hooks to hang bundled wires in an enclosure are now available from PEM Fastening Systems. The new (Type TDO) hook hardware joins the growing family of PEM self-clinching TY-D cable-tie mounts designed to provide secure attachment points for mounting wires to electronic chassis or enclosures without the problems associated with traditional mounting methods.
The new hardware's "hook" feature provides a unique capability for users to temporarily remove (then return) tie-bundled wires from their mounting points (which is often necessary when wires block access to components for service or when wires must be replaced). With the cable-tie hooks securely in place as designed, tie-bundled wires can simply be slipped off. When the bundled wires are ready to be returned to their mounting points, they can be easily re-hanged on their hooks.
All this is accomplished without cutting or damaging the cable ties and with wires remaining wrapped.
As with other PEM self-clinching cable-tie mounting hardware, the new cable-tie re-installs permanently without screws to save production time and money; utilize no adhesives that can fail over time and temperature cycling; and promote EMI/RFI shielding and reduce the possibility of contamination by eliminating the need for any openings in an enclosure or chassis.
PENM Type TDO self-clinching cable-tie hooks are available in several sizes and can be installed in sheets as thin as .040" (1.02mm) or as thick as .125" (3.18mm.)
