Should I use nylon cable clamps or stainless-steel cushion clamps?
The choice between using nylon cable clamps or stainless steel depends on two factors, the conditions the cable clamps will be subjected to, and the length of time it will be in use. If you are using the cable clamps indoors in a relatively safe environment with no corrosive chemicals, then nylon is a safe bet. If, on the other hand, the environment will not be accessed for years or is exposed to hazardous or corrosive chemicals, then stainless steel will be the way to go. For the most part, nylon cable clamps can handle the vast majority of applications but when you need stainless steel, make sure you use stainless steel. So where might you use cable clamps?
