Default avionics backshell connectors

Anybody have closeup views of the Garmin backshell connectors (gma340, gtx327 style), specifically the horizontal bars that screw together to put pressure on the individual wires as they exit the backshell? For the life of me, i can't figure how they go on and screw down in a horizontal fashion.

I get the larger gold colored back shell and the c shaped support piece, but not the two pece bracket!!

They end up being at an angle. Sorry no pictures.

Here you go. Make sure the sharp edges are pointing away from the wires. I also like to use silicone tape around the wire bundle where it passes through the strain relief:

that's great guys!

I had seen those pictures, but wasn;t sure that was the final assembled form- only way i could put it together WAS at an angle, but it seemed kind of hokey!
