Abstract : A fiber optic cable connector is comprised of two ferrules, a collar member, and a connection sleeve. First and second ferrules each have an internal bore to receive the end of fiber optic cable bundles together with a suitable bonding material for securing the fiber optic cable bundles. The terminal ends of the fiber optic cable bundles are ground and polished substantially optically flat. External threads on the outermost portion of the second ferrule at its terminal end are engaged by the internal threads of a connection sleeve which has an inwardly disposed flange at its other end dimensioned to bear upon an end of the collar member for drawing the two terminal ends of the fiber optic cable bundles together in an aligned assembly.
