Abstract : The patent describes a moistureproof wire holder for attachment to a panel and for holding wires in a fixed position when the wires are passed through a hole of substantially equal diameter in the panel. The holder is a two part device, one part placed on each side of the panel. Each part is made of a silicone rubber member fitted into a recess portion of a plastic or metal clamp. The clamps exert a spring action on the wires to resist movement away from the panel, thereby compressing the rubber into a moistureproof seal between the clamp and the panel. The silicone rubber also maintains a positive moisture seal around the wire.
