Upgaded service

What clips/ clamps are best to use when bringing wire into my new panel from circuits. The main lines come in through a schedule 40 PVC pipe but on the old panel there are some metal clamps that screw into the bony of the panel and clamp the wire with two screws. While some are a blue plastic clip the is just snapped into the panel and the romex is just pinched in it.
Just asking to see what I can use to make things look good and be secure.

I prefer to use romex clamps and have never used those plastic snap in bushings. Keep saying I am going to grab some if I am not able to get a normal clamp on the wire.


With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.
