A New Porcelain Cleat

The cleat shown in the accompanying cut is being put on the market by the Thompson-Brown Electric Company of 97 High street, Boston, and will be known to the trade as the "T. B." cleat. It is made applicable to either single or double wire installation, and admits any size wire from No. 14 up. The claims made for this cleat are that it grips the wire firmly, does not at all injure the insulation, obviates the danger of the wire slipping down on the screw and causing liability to short circuit, and is moisture proof. The cleat conforms to all requirements of the underwriters, and is manufactured of the best glazed porcelain, thoroughly vitirified.
