Optical fibre cable installation


A tool (W) is used for positioning an O-ring (26) over blown optical fibre tubing (6) passing through an aperture (7) in a cavity wall (8a, 8b). The tool (W) comprises a hollow mandrel (19) through which the tubing (5) can pass, a handle (21), and a collar (20) positioned between the handle and the mandrel. The mandrel (19) has a length such that when the tool is used to push an O-ring (46) over the tubing (6), the O-ring (26) is positioned substantially in the centre of the cavity between the two wall portions (8a, 8b). The tool can also be used to insert the two piece plastic customer lead in units (C) into the wall (8a, 8b). <IMAGE>
