clamping cable into metal boxes

Recently ran new wiring into metal boxes and fixtures without using clamps to protect the cable. Is there any way to retroactively protect the cable where it enters the metal box or must I disconnect and instally with clamps?

Call an electrical supply near you and ask. There are clamps that could be taken apart, put around the wire, and inserted through the hole, but you'd have to take the splices apart to install the locknut anyway.

There are plastic clamps that don't require a locknut and simply snap into the hole, but I don't know of any that can be taken apart to put around the wire (you slide the wire through them before the wire and clamp are inserted into the box).

What you need is a clamp that can be disassembled to put around the wire, and which will be held to the box by snapping into the hole (no locknut).
