metal spiral shield around cables

<< < (3/3)

armandine2:
Not spiral but an example of a pump cable protector/support.

Ed. perhaps more weight support than protection?

EPAIII:
I do not think that is a very good shield. You can purchase braided shields from the electronic supply houses which would be much better as shields.

Of course, if you just like how it looks .......

ajb:
I just remembered I randomly found some decorative plastic spiral wrap stuff at my local big box department store a little while ago.  It won't be as robust as anything metal, but might be good enough, and will probably end up being more flexible and easier to deal.  Tricky to find the right search terms to distinguish from the more common larger spiral wrap stuff, but this ebay listing looks very similar, and there will probably be lots of similar recommended listings on that page: https://www.ebay.com/itm/234149481417  Picture of the listing attached in case that link goes dead.

Yeah, that's a cable support grip, although it doesn't look to be sized properly for that cable--or perhaps has been a bit abused in its lifetime.

From context I'm pretty sure the OP is looking for mechanical protection rather than electrical shielding or aesthetic enhancement.
