Default what are they called?

I seem to recall many years ago on my cycle, having something like this to hold cables to the frame
https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/light...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

Instead of being square with a hole there was an arch. The cable sat in the arch. What are they called and when can I get them? I have tried a search via Google and have not found what I am looking for

I want to use it for holding a sensor to a pipe. I know I could use a jubliee clip but I dont want to.

thanks

they just "slipped" over the frame and they spring tension as they wrapped around the frame kept them in place

This what you are on about Ian?



They're bicycle cable clips for securing brake lines etc to the frame but that type are now referred to as "old school" or "vintage" and hard to source now.

Have a search for lawnmower clips also, these are used to hold accelerator bars in the on position.
Here is an example but this particular one is a little pricey also.

This forum is brilliant, people know so much and share information and also going to the trouble of finding items and passing the information on.

thank you everyone, I really appreciate the help
