Last year I did a job in Semi Valley and we hired a gaffer and sprinter van package. The truck was nicely outfitted. The gaffers AC stingers  cords had these great trick line cable wraps that were housed in a little plastic  connector type rig. He said they made these in various sizes depending on the cord type, SJO, SOO etc. Does any one know where i can order this type of cable wrap ? The closest thing i have seen one line is one offered by Barn door lighting that is called: bullet cable tie with clear window. I have attached a screen shot. The problem is that the only size offered is for soow cable and i also have many other types of 12/3 cable .

Any help would be awesome .

Thank you.

IMHO they are overkill for stingers and not cheap either.  I find tying a constrictor knot with long tails sufficient. 

Anyway, I don't have a direct source for them but Lex carries them, maybe try the MCMaster-Carr website.

Thanks again for your  assistance.

As I recall the clamp on cable marker and rope holders were about $10 each, great for feeder cables worth hundreds of dollars. Anyway you could try: http://www.so-calvalueadded.com/cable-holder.shtml 

I use a simple label under clear self adhesive shrink tubing (so does Lex for cables they manufacture).
