The cable is forced between the protrusions 7, 8 and the resistance of the material enables varying sizes of cable to be held by the clip; in addition the clip is provided with teeth 10 which protrude downwardly from the underside of the top wall of the clip to engage the cable and these are distorted depending upon the size of the cable In a modification each of the openings is provided with teeth adjacent the top wall of the clip which engage the cable to prevent it moving longitudinally. When the ledges 16 are provided the means 15 is omitted but the clip is otherwise similar.; The clip can have second pairs of openings 4, 5 so that it can hold second cables.
