A seriously one-sided quick fix

A specialist supplier of electrical components, enclosures and rack systems, has announced that its newly-patented Kwik Fix range of cable glands features a locking mechanism that requires access from one side of the panel only – without special tools - yet still achieves IP68 sealing. Hylec-APLs' Kwik Fix cable glands also have a wide -20 to +100degC operating temperature range so they suit many applications and conditions.

Installation is a simple three-step process. First, the gland’s base is inserted through the entry with its mounting foot placed up against the internal wall. An external locking nut, turned anti-clockwise, secures the gland in place and forms the IP68 seal. The cable can then be installed in the normal manner, with the cap nut tightening in the conventional clockwise direction.

Previously, when faced with restricted interior or rear access, installers have been forced to use products that do not guarantee the seal. Also they often required special tools. The Kwik Fix cable glands are easily installed and removed from one side only making installation and maintenance much simpler and reducing costs.  More these glands take up less space, leaving more room for wiring etc.

Kwik Fix cable glands are suitable for all standard hole sizes (M16, M20, M25 and M32) and fits wall widths of between 1 and 4mm. They carry UL and VDE approval.
