, The object of the present invention. is to plot the class described,
The invention consists in the construction to be" described more fully hereinafter and definitely set forth in the claims. a
Reference is to be had to the accompany ing drawing, forming apart of this specificatio'n ,'and which illustrates a short section of 5.
cable to which the grip is applied.
Referring more particularly to the parts 1 represents a short section of cable bf common -forrn used in underground electric work.

The grip 2 comprises a body 3 of cylindrical form. and composed of a plurality of interlaced strands 4. -In this way the-holly 3 con-- I stitutes a basketoi bag having the form of an envelopin sleeve. The strands 4 are iriclined wit respeet'to the axis of the body, so At one that theypass in helices thereabout. extremity the strands 4 are attached together in pairs, as indicated. at the points '5. At the opposite extremity the strands are united so as tofornl t ngs 6, having eyes 7, adapted to receive the fingers, so that a |)llll.'
