THE "SIMPLEST" WIRING CLEAT

 

The accompanying illustration shows a wiring cleat recently introduced by the Electric Heat Alarm Co., of 145 High street, Boston, and called by them the "Simplest" because of eight excellent reasons, as follows: It is in one piece; it anchors the wire; there is no breakage; it does not cut or bend the wire; it can be put up independent of the wire; it does not interfere with the perfect insulation of the wire; it is practical for nearly all sizes of wire, and it will bind two sizes of wire at the same time.
