Abstract: An optical fiber cable connector including a first member and a second member. The first member has a channel for an optical fiber of an optical fiber cable, and an outer surface configured to have a strength member of the cable located thereon. The second member is configured to slide on top of the first member. The second member includes a barrel section configured to be compressed onto the first member and a gripping section made of a resiliently deformable material which is sized and shaped to pull the strength member along the outer surface of the first member as the second member is slid on top of the first member.
