Figure 2-51.Military Standard hand tool for self-clinching cable straps.
Use proper tools and make sure the strap is cut flush with the eye of the strap.
This prevents painful cuts and scratches caused by protruding strap ends. Do not
use plastic cable straps in high-temperature areas (above 250º
HIGH-TEMPERATURE PRESSURE-SENSITIVE TAPE LACING
High-temperature, pressure-sensitive tape must be used to tie wire bundles in areas where the
temperature may exceed 250º
F. Install the tape as follows (figure 2-52):
1. Wrap the tape around the wire bundle three times, with a two-thirds overlap for each turn.
2. Heat-seal the loose tape end with the side of a soldering iron tip.
