Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

That Which is Claimed is:

1. An assembly comprising:

a mounting structure including a mounting hole;

a cable hanger having two arms with locking projections, the locking projections inserted into the mounting hole of the mounting structure, and the arms defining a space for engaging a cable; and

a support for maintaining the mounting of the cable hanger in the mounting structure, the support including a main panel and first and second fingers extending in a direction away from the main panel;

wherein the second finger is inserted between the arms of the cable hanger, and the first finger is positioned laterally of one of the arms.

2. The assembly defined in Claim 1, wherein the support further comprises a third finger extending away from the main panel in the same direction as the first and second fingers.

3. The assembly defined in Claim 2, wherein the first and third fingers are substantially coplanar.

4. The assembly defined in Claim 2, wherein the first, second and third fingers are substantially coplanar.

5. The assembly defined in Claim 1 , wherein the main panel and the second finger are substantially coplanar.

6. The assembly defined in Claim 2, wherein the main panel and first, second and third fingers are substantially coplanar.

7. The assembly defined in any of Claims 1-6, wherein the first finger includes a grip-enhancing feature.

8. The assembly defined in any of Claims 2-6, wherein the first and third fingers have substantially identical profiles as they extend away from the main panel.

9. The assembly defined in any of Claims 1-6, wherein the first finger is bent to a shallow V-shaped profile.

10. The assembly defined in Claim 1, wherein the first finger has a beveled inner edge.

11. The assembly defined in Claim 2, further comprising a fourth finger that extends from the main panel, the fourth finger being inserted between the locking projections of the cable hanger.

12. A method of stabilizing a mounted cable hanger, comprising:

providing a cable hanger mounted on a mounting structure, the cable hanger having two arms with locking projections, the locking projections inserted into a mounting hole of the mounting structure, and the arms defining a space for engaging a cable;

providing a support including a main panel and first and second fingers extending in a direction away from the main panel; and

inserting the second finger of the support between the arms of the cable hanger such that the first finger is positioned adjacent to but lateral of one of the arms.

13. The method defined in Claim 12, wherein a cable is mounted in the space defined by the arms of the cable hanger.

14. The method defined in Claim 12, wherein the mounting structure is a leg of an antenna tower.

15. The method defined in Claim 12, wherein the support further comprises a third finger extending away from the main panel in the same direction as the first and second fingers.

16. The method defined in Claim 15, wherein the first and third fingers are

substantially coplanar.

17. The method defined in Claim 16, wherein the first, second and third fingers are substantially coplanar;

18. The method defined in Claim 12, wherein the main panel and the second finger are substantially coplanar.

19. The method defined in Claim 17, wherein the main panel and first, second and third fingers are substantially coplanar.

20. The method defined in any of Claims 12-18, wherein the first finger includes a grip-enhancing feature.

21. The method defined in any of Claims 15-18, wherein the first and third fingers have substantially identical profiles as they extend away from the main panel.

22. The method defined in Claim 12, wherein the first finger is bent to a shallow V-shaped profile.

23. The method defined in Claim 12, wherein the first finger has a beveled inner edge.

24. The method defined in Claim 15, further comprising a fourth finger that extends from the main panel, the fourth finger being inserted between the locking projections of the cable hanger.
