                                                              30 being firmly attached and fixed to the cable 10. The ferrule

         material the post 12 or other anchor point is made of. In one
         embodiment, the first end 22 contains a slot 24 for engaging a
         suitable wrench 40 that may move the tubular component 20
         rotatably in the hole 14. Many different surface shapes on the
         first end 22 could be used to engage a mating type of wrench
         40 to provide a rotating force to the tubular component 20.
         The second end 23 provides a thrust bearing surface to one
         end of the ferrule 30. Therefore, thrust can be applied to the
         ferrule 30. The tubular component 20 may rotate while simul-
         taneously the ferrule 30 and the cable 10 do not rotate. The
         axial bore 28 located in the tubular component 20 provides an
         opening through which the cable 10 may pass.
           Figure 25 shows the ferrule 30. In one embodiment, the fer-
         rule 30 is a tubular shape having a first end 32 and second end   Figure 26: view illustrating a wrench according to an embodiment of
