Ty-Duct Wiring Duct's universal mounting clip serves multiple purposes, including allowing either the divider to be snapped into the base or two slot sizes on the button to accommodate nylon cable ties or hook and loop fasteners. Embossed holes enable combo buttons to be installed after the duct has been riveted to the panel.
Ty-Duct Wiring Duct also features a protective film on the cover, but allows for marking or labeling with temporary ink. The cover is also grooved to provide a better grip for installation and removal. Ty-Duct Wiring Duct is available complete with tooling and accessories, as well as in solid, wide slot, narrow slot and round hole types.
