Scope

Design a Strain Relief mechanism, which will be mounted to the cable trays and will keep fiber optic cables restrained not requiring any tools.The mechanism features a torque limiting clip clutch that prevents overtightening fiber optic cables, which could reduce the data transfer rate. The unit can be opened and additional cables can be added to the bundle. Small, practical and aesthetically pleasing Strain Relief was designed for injection molding to reduce the cost of manufacturing.
