Thomas & Betts Product Cited at TESSCO's Innovation Showcase 2012

MEMPHIS, Tenn.- The Catamount® Twist Tail® Cable Tie from Thomas & Betts was recognized with an Innovation Showcase Award at TESSCO Technology Inc.'s Innovation Showcase, a trade event held in Baltimore on Oct. 2 to 3.

TESSCO Technology Inc., a Thomas & Betts distributor, provides products and services for the construction, operation and maintenance of wireless and broadband communications and data systems. The event drew more than 50 vendors and more than 500 attendees, most of whom were contractors, buyers and specifiers in government, fossil fuel, rail and transit, internet service provider and retail industries. The awards were determined by a poll of the attendees.

"The Catamount® Twist Tail® Cable Tie allows the removal of the excess tail without the use of tools, which substantially reduces installation time." said Chad Smith, director, product management at Thomas & Betts. "All the installer needs to do is grasp the excess tail between his thumb and forefinger, bend it in the other direction and twist. It's also safer, as removal of the tail doesn't leave sharp edges."
