Abstract : A fiber optic cable junction for joining the ends of two fiberoptic cables comprises the steps of inserting a tube fastener over each cable end and inserting a protective sleeve and a splint fastener over either cable end. The cable ends are then spliced together. The protective sleeve is positioned over the splice and is supported by fastening an inner sprint rod to the cable buffer with the tube fasteners. The cable buffer is supported by an outer splint rod fastened to the tube fasteners by the splint fastener.
