Nostalgia, I recall this with oval washers to try mimic expectant cambial 
growth…and those bulldog grips one being inverted…

There was concern with steel cable that during the wind those whippy branches 
would cause failure at attachment point, where the cobra was supposed to 
reduce gently via the rubber insert, acting as a cushion.

What is the forums opinion on these things?



I had previously liked the idea for reinforcing old steel cables,
non-invasive but still with the "rigidity" of steel cable.



But as these looked to have been in place for a while I called the supplier
to ask how long the webbing section should last.



Their reply was 5 years like all textile products and harnesses..



Seems a bit pointless to install something that needs changing every 5
years
but if that's their advice..
