Title: Security cable coupling device

Abstract: A coupler device for securing an additional wire rope cable without a lock to a wire rope cable with a lock on one end. The coupler includes an internal planar cavity and cavity openings that are sized and arranged to allow a first cable without a locked end to pass through the cavity and allow a second cable having a loop end and a distal locked end to pass its loop end through the device in a direction orthogonal to the plane of the cavity, resulting in the second cable crossing above and adjacent to the first cable, preventing its removal from the coupler. The coupler devices present a simple method of coupling and securing to each other a variety of cable configurations, including securing a cable to a shaft or padlock.
