WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:
1. A cable connector load limited to an approximate calibrated tension load value, comprising:
a) a main body having first and second opposing ends, the first of said ends including cable connecting means, the second of said ends defining a central bore, b) a second body having fore and aft opposing ends, the fore end including cable connecting means, the aft end defining an elongated shaft constructed and arranged to closely fit within the central bore of said main body, said shaft including a passageway from one exterior surface to the opposing exterior surface;
c) said second end of said main body including two openings through the exterior surface into said central bore, said openings being directly opposite one another such that a passageway is formed from one side of the main body to the other through which a breakaway pin may be inserted;
d) a breakaway pin for insertion into the main body pasεageway and shaft passageway to lock the main body to the second body, said pin including two annular grooves spaced from each other such that the distance between the grooves is equal to the diameter of said shaft, said grooves providing break points in the pin; and
e) retainer means for preventing a breakaway pin from leaving the passageways formed in said main and second bodies such that an assembled device will stay together.
2. The cable connector of Claim 1 wherein said retainer means includes an o-ring which is insertable into an annular groove connecting the exterior openings of said main body passageway.
3. The cable connector of Claim 1 wherein said breakaway pin is constructed and arranged to include two spaced annular grooves cut into said pin such that the furthest distance between the grooves is equal to the diameter of said second body shaft such that shearing of said pin will occur inside the shaft passageway.
4. The cable connector of Claim 3 wherein said grooves cut into said pin define a sharply defined transition zone between a head of said pin and a breakaway neck region.
5. A cable connector load limited to an approximate calibrated tension load value, comprising:
a) a main body having first and second opposing ends, the first of said ends including cable connecting means, the second of said ends defining a central bore, b) a second body having fore and aft opposing ends, the fore end including cable connecting means, the aft end defining an elongated shaft constructed and arranged to closely fit within the central bore of said main body, said shaft including a passageway from one exterior surface to the opposing exterior surface;
c) said second end of said main body including two openings through the exterior surface into said central bore, said openings being directly opposite one another such that a passageway is formed from one side of the main body to the other through which a breakaway pin may be inserted, said main body further including an annular groove connecting the exterior openings of said pasεageway and into which an o-ring may be
inserted;
d) a breakaway pin means for insertion into the main body passageway and shaft passageway to lock the main body to the second body, said pin including two annular rings spaced from each other such that the distance between the rings is equal to the diameter of said shaft, said rings providing break points in the pin; and
e) an O-ring snapped into the annular groove of said main body to prevent a breakaway pin from leaving the passageways formed in said main and second bodies such that an assembled device will stay together.
