Clips and Clamps to Attach Wires and Wiring Harnesses to the Bottom of a Trailer Frame

Question:

Given that I have a trailer wiring harness, what are the ways to attach the wires to the underside of the trailer? Masking tape? Sodder? If sodder, can the sodder be placed directly on top of the wire as it lays on the metal frame?, Special connectors that attach to the frame what are they called? Thank you

There are many ways you can secure wires to a trailer. I would not recommend the use of tape as it will wear out quickly when exposed to the elements. Soldering is also not recommended because it is a more permanent method and you may need to change wires or move them in the future the hot solder would also melt the coating on the wiring, causing a short. If you can find some large enough, wire ties could be a simple solution.

We have several clamps and clips that could work for this application. First is the Wire Frame Clip, # 464600. These clips are designed to secure one or more wires on your frame or panel surface. The height of the Wire Frame Clip is 1-1/2 inches, width is 1/2 inch, width for wire capacity is 3/8 inches, and the frame depth is 5/16 of an inch. It clips to the vehicle or trailer frame and secures with an edge that has two points like fangs.

Next we have the 1/2 inch Metal Loom Clamp, # A0500, and the smaller 1/4 inch # A0250. These clamps usually attached to the frame with self-tapping screws.
