Cable strain relief

I am trying to locate those strain relief connectors used by phone companies on their feed cables to houses. They come in two pieces and are designed for flat cable. The wire mesh ones work better with round cable. Have searched the net but I must be describing them wrong sine I only find the mesh types. I am re-wiring everything in/on my mast and would like to provide strain relief under the mast cap rather than just tying a knot like I found when I removed the cap.

Any "phone" guys out there that know the manufacture of the ones I am looking for?

Rgds,

Don

Re: Cable strain relief

I think what you are referring to is known as a wedge clamp.
I did a google search and found this result:

Yep, that is the item. Thank you. Would have never thought of that name. Was keeping my eye open for a telephone guy, not many around here anymore, most folks are getting all their services via their tv cable feed or are using their cell phone as their only phone nowadays.
