Title: Cable sealing device for consecutive cable ports

Abstract: A sealing device includes a base with a first end and a second open end. A cylindrical inner wall is formed inside the base and communicates the first end to the second open end. First threads are formed on the cylindrical inner wall, and a first through hole is formed in the first end. A cap includes a top, an open bottom, and a cylindrical outer wall. Second threads are formed on the cylindrical outer wall for mating engagement with the first threads. A second through hole is formed in the top. A tapering inner wall is formed inside the cap and communicates the second through hole to the open bottom. A gasket resides adjacent to the first end of the base and within the tapering inner wall of the cap. A third through hole is formed in the gasket and the first, second, and third through holes are aligned to receive a cable, wire or similar cylindrical object. Tightening of the cap into the base results in compression of the gasket, constriction of the third through hole, and thereby sealing of the cable.
