Abstract

This improved design prevents fracture of the strain relief bar when it is applied to the cable connector assembly. The improvements include (see drawing) an I beam section 1 to strengthen the edge portion, as well as the complete coring of the cable strain relief section 2, to provide dual pressure ridges regardless of which side of the bar is used. Also included are locking tabs 3 which prevent the rotation of the jacketed cable within the strain relief body itself.
