Patent Number: 6,916,014

Title: Cable routing and affixment apparatus

Abstract: A cable guide for containing and routing cables through building. One version of the guide includes a rigid hollow tube with a slot, flared ends, and mounting hangers while a second embodiment encompasses a tube axially split in two sections. The tube has a bend that traverses any angle necessary for a particular application, typically between 0.degree. and 180.degree.. There may be more than one bend. The cable is inserted and removed from the guide through the straight or helical slot, which extends the full length of the tube or by separating the clamshell. The tube ends are flared. Each end optionally has a cable retaining annular groove for a cable tie or the like. An additional embodiment has a hinged flap to perform the same function. The hangers are tabs that extend from the tube and spaced out along the length of the tube or a bracket like structure which provides a means for attachment.
