The documentation is a little unclear.  What I think you may mean (because
it doesn't lose information if you
do it this way) isline_clamp:1 is the top row, and you might have
line_clamp:1=suspension;pin;suspension.  If that is
what you mean then an example would help clarify.

It is Brtish *layman's* English.  It would be a good idea to check with
somebody who works in the industry.  But I suspect
he or she will tell you it's an insulator.  In British layman's English,
attachment is better than clamp.  I'll see if I can get
an answer out of somebody with a youtube channel who works with this stuff
(don't hold your breath).
