Install a Wire Clamp

Timothy Thiele
In order to attach the wire clamp to an electric range receptacle, insert half of the clamp into the receptacle box hole. This part of the clamp will be the one with the smaller holes. Place it on the bottom of the wire. Now, install the other half of the clamp into the hole on the top side of the wire. Using pump pliers, squeeze the two halves together and install the two Phillips-head screws. Tighten the connection snugly and then tug at the wire to be sure that the wire is secure.
