What's the proper name for this cable restraint you find on the back of all kinds of equipment.
Can't seem to find the right name to get good search results on google.

Thanks for all the help. The term that gets the most hits is "cable grip"

Once again, all -

The beauty of the exploder as it currently is.

Fast responses, didn't take a lot of anyones time, good answers, and places
to go look.

The only thing better would have been if someone had the model and sent it
their way (if I'd had the model, I would've).



Can't PTC just leave well enough alone.

Strain relief is what we call them. And we typically use ones from Heyco.
See attached sample.



Thanks,
