0d. 2,2, 1929. L MARTIN 1,732,410

CABLE GRIP Filed April 17, 1929 ATTORNEY adapted to substantially conform to the contour of the eye portion, neck portion and shoulder portion of the grip is provided. These members are preferably formed 0f sheet metal and may be duplicates of each other.

Their lower parts 13 substantially enclose the shoulderv portion 8 of the cable grip' and their edges are in overlapping relation to each other. Their intermediate parts 14 which enclose the neck portion 9 also havev their edges overlapped. The neck portions 14 are preferably provided with corrugations 15 about which a wire 16 may be wrapped to secure the members in position on the cable grip.

The portions 17 of the protectiony members 'are substantially semi-circular in cross section as shown in Figs. 4 and 5 andV embrace or'enclos'e the exposed wires on the eye portion-of the grip. The porti-ons 17 are in overlapping relation where they meet each other as indicated at 18v in Fig. 1.

As the cable grip is being drawn through a duct the portions 1-7`of the armor will protect the exposed strands of the eye of the grip and the portions 13 will protectthe shoulder ofthe grip. If the shoulder portions 13-strik`e an obstruction they are free t0 move towardl each other so as not to interfere with the flexibility of the grip. As the rshoulder portions 13 move'toward each other, neck portions'will tend to lmove away from each other, but thisfmovement will not be .suiiicient to separate the overlapped ends 18.

The two parts of the armor may be made Vdtiplica'tesof eachother so as to avoid' the 'necessity of having right and lefthand members or they may be made from different dies if desired. Vhfen they kare made duplicates of each other there will be su-iicient resiliency in the metal to 'allow one part to be sprung over the other at the overlapping ends 18.

The armor may be readily and quickly secured to the cable gripjand wheneither or both of the members are worn or distorted new ones may be substituted with very little Vtrouble and expensedue to the simplicity and Vcheapness of manufacture of an armor of this type.

While the preferred embodiment a pair of members is'described and illustrated, it is considered to be within the scope ofthe invention to provide more than two members secured to Ythe grip 'and conforming substantially withthe kcontour of the shoulder portion, neck portion and eye portion of the grip 'and having sliding relation with each other so as not to impair the flexibility of the grip.

a Changes in details of form and construction may `be made by one skilled in the artwithoutldepartiiig'from the spirit of the inventi'on orfth'e scope of theapp'ended claims. A What I claim is ':v f

V1.* cable grip-armor for a cable grip formed of a tubular Woven mesh of wire strands bunched together at one end, said armor comprising a plurality of rigid overlapping members adapted to conform substantially to the contour of the eye portion, neck portion and shoulder portion of the cable grip to protect the eye and shoulder portions of said grip against wear when being drawn through a duct.
