Enabling Next Generation Assembly
TE Connectivity (TE) P-Clamp provides a light, fast, and efficient solution to mounting cable harnesses. (10) TE P-Clamp sizes cover the full cable diameter range of (21) AS21919 P-Clamp sizes. Faster install times and lighter weight, give TE P-Clamps a lower applied cost than standard AS21919 P-Clamps.

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, introduced its new P-Clamps with lock and mounting features that offer engineers the flexibility to rethink the way electrical and fluid systems are configured. Engineered with separate mounting and locking features, TE’s P-Clamps can be installed earlier in the assembly process compared to standard AS21919 P-Clamps.
TE’s P-Clamps simplify and speed up installation by eliminating the need for tools and hardware when installing cable assemblies. The risk of foreign object debris also decreases when tools are not required for installation. The P-Clamp’s design incorporates a quick-lock feature, which enables users to quickly open and close the clamp as needed without unmounting it.
Made of lightweight, aerospace grade PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) polymer, TE P-Clamps come in 10 sizes that cover the same range as 21 standard AS21919 P-Clamps. Using PEEK helps reduce weight by up to 25% while maintaining comparable physical strength as metal P-Clamps.
“Our new P-Clamps are helping enable next generation harness assembly by removing the design roadblocks of standard metal P-Clamps and replacing them with features that give engineers and operators more flexibility,” said Tyler Weber, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “Combined with easier installation and reduced weight, that flexibility makes TE’s new P-Clamp ideally suited for customers who need versatility and simplicity without sacrificing ruggedness.”
TE P-Clamps are designed for mounting cable harnesses in a wide range of applications including commercial aviation, military aerospace, military vehicles, marine vehicles, industrial vehicles, rail and automotive.
