slots 22 and 2d, respectively. These slots are adapted to
adjustably and slidabiy receive a vertical binding post 26
or the like having a diameter substantially equal to the
distance separating the pair of ?xed posts 16. The elon
gated slots 22 and 24 are both disposed so that the bind

The slanted sides of these elongated slots thus form cam

to any horizontal or vertical movement of the binding
post as with respect to the bracket
in FEGURE 5, a rope 38 is shown in proper position
on the holder, as viewed from the top surface 18 of the
binding post is pulled between the ?xed upright posts by
the action of the rope whereby the relative dimensions
and spacing cause the rope to bind between the binding
post about which it is snubbed and the ?xed upright posts
between which it passes with a force proportional to the
tension on the rope.
in the case of high cable loads the binding action is
so strong as to make it very dii?cult to rele"se the cable
or rope from its arrested position between the respective
posts. In many cases this may only be accomplished ‘
by the application of a force of a like magnitude to the
cable load to the binding post, after the load has been
removed from thev cable, in order to move the binding
post away from the ?xed posts and effect a release of the
cable.
it is, therefore, an object of this invention to provide
a novel rope and cable retaining means.
Another object of this invention is to provide a rope
and cable retaining means having a novel release struc
ture which requires a minimum operating force.
These and other objects of this invention wiil become
apparent with reference to the following speci?cation and
drawings.
In the drawings:
FIGURE 1 comprises a perspective of the invention;
FlGURE 2 is a top plan view of the invention as shown
in FIGURE 1;

shown in FIGURE 1;
bracket it}, as being passed between the ?xed posts 16,
around the binding post 26 and back out between the
?xed posts 16.
Operation
In operation, when a rope or cable 38 is positioned on
the holder as shown in FIGURE 5 and any tension is
placed thereon between the two ends thereof, the tension
acts to pull the binding post as up between the ?xed posts
16 whereby the rope 33 is held tightly by the resulting
binding action thereon between the binding post 2.6 and
the ?xed posts 16.
When extra heavy tensile loads are expected to occur,
in order to prevent initial slip of the rope or cable 38
through the holder, the binding post 26 may be forced
downward by a sledge or the like whereby the bearing pin
23 engages the lower cam surfaces formed by the cam
slots
and 32 tending to force the binding post 26
forward between the ?xed posts 16 whereby the binding
action on the rope or cable therebetween is increased.
During the application of heavy tensile loads to the
rope or cable 35, the binding post 26, rope 38 and fixed
posts may be forced together to such a degree that it is
extremely di?icult to either move the binding post 26 to
allow for slip or to completely release the rope from its
held position. This may be readily accomplished by the

invention by applying a force in the upward direction to
the binding post 26. This causes the bearing pin 2% to
engage the upper cam surfaces provided by the bearing
slots 3?; and 32 tending to force the binding post as rear
wardly in the elongated slots 22 and 24 away from the
?xed posts to. Thus the binding action on the rope 38
may be readily released.
