When installing the cables on a Ripley, it is necessary to lock the casings together near the front of the shock to keep them in place while riding. Most people use a zip tie or two for this and it works fine if they are very tight. Zip ties can be kind of slippery, so Ibis designed a small clamp about the size of a dice that locks the casings in place more securely. If you are having trouble with your casings moving around, this will take care of it.
This part is for all pre-2016 Ibis Ripley models.
