An assembly and method for securely connecting a cable to a device are described. A cable has a signal carrier and a plurality of reinforcements running along its longitudinal axis. A first member has a tapered aperture through it and a second member has an aperture though it which can receive at least the signal carrier of the cable. The second member is tapered and configured to mate within the tapered aperture to form a mating region which receives free ends of the plurality of reinforcements. The first member and second member are fixed together with the free ends of the reinforcements trapped therebetween by an adhesive.
