Abstract : The device uses a grounding ring, having both an outer and an inner ring element combination, which is placed about a shielded cable to be grounded. The inner ring has a multitude of grounding spikes cammed to move in a radially inward direction in response to rotation of the outer ring and pierce any outer insulation and the metal shielding sufficiently to make good electrical contact with the cable shielding about its circumferences.
