The ideal size of cable clip for any given job will of course depend largely on the thickness of wire, tubing or conduit you’re looking to run through it. It’s also worth considering the type of environment the cabling run will be secured in, to determine what cable clip size or gauge will be most appropriate for any given scenario.
You might like to consider whether or not you’re likely to want to add any further wiring along the same run in future, as certain clip types and sizes allow for this more easily than others that might have been selected to give a very tailored fit.
While a variety of especially large cable clips are available for securing much heavier runs of tubing or conduit than you’d normally expect to encounter outside of demanding industrial settings, some of the most common sizes of cable clips found in day-to-day home and professional use include:
Cable clips colours
Cable clips are available in a wide variety of materials and hues for all manner of home, office and outdoor settings. It’s far more common to find the classic nail-in plastic-type wire clips being sold in either black, white, grey or beige/brown than any other colour.
As black cable clips or white cable clips are generally each selected for their ability to blend in with mounting surfaces or cabling runs, the best option will normally be to pick whichever colour appears the more neutral and unobtrusive for your individual taste and environment.
