I'm trying to find cable sleeves for clothesline or similar cable, red
What it is for is short cable with a loop, at the ends, one end large
enough to use fro hand hold.
I want them to attach to wood to wood blocks, under jacks of a motor
home, to make it easy to pull them out as I have a bad back.
haven't figured an easy way to get them under the jacks, it in the first
I don't need 2 or 3 hundred just six or 8 and three five ft or so
lengths with small loop on one end and larger hand loop.
A couple things come to mind off hand. One is a compression splice
for electric livestock fence. The local farm store sells them is pack
of 25 or fifty. More than you need but they're cheap.
Another would be compression fittings for underground electrical
wire. A local electrician might have some. Neither suggestion would
look that good but should work.
Try a pet store for various colors and lengths of tie-downs. Get the
12' lengths and cut them in half to make two 6' lengths.
Use an eye hook in the wooden block to attach the cable's spring-
loaded clip to the block. Lower item in this picture is a "lag" style,
bit you could also use bolt-through styles if that fits your situation
For the handle end use cable clamps of this style (or any of a
multitude of other styles of cable clamps) to make a loop at the cut
end of the cable:
the problem I encounter is having to bend down and see the eyes or holes
etc or I could use the awning rod to retrieve them. To place them
because of ground friction you need the block not to be able to rotate
around the rod end when pushing it in position.
Obviously the solution would be a rod fixed onto the block long enough
to place it and of course retrieve it, but you couldn't store it. Maybe
some could but I wouldn't be able to find room. What ever RVer needs is
a 6 year old Grand Kid to do the grunt work.
