Default Ladder Loc?

I'm refurbishing my center-fed zepp antenna. When I
constructed it, I used something called a ladder loc or
ladder lock
which is a plastic strain relief used
at the end of the ladder line to tie it to the radiating
wires.

Any one know if this is still made?

A semi-answer. I don't know if Ladder Lok is still made, but Ten Tec sells a
similar product. Check their web site.

i don't know what ladder loc is, but i am curious what a 'center fed zepp'
might be? could that possibly just be a dipole?? classically a 'zepp'
antenna was a 1/4 wave wire trailed from a zeppelin airship end-fed with a
1/4 wave feedline that essentially acts as the other half of the dipole.

Still made. The Wireman, AES and Radio Works all sell it.

Hi Dave,

You are correct except it was a 1/2wave wire end fed with 1/4 wave feed
line.
But today the center fed dipole cut for the lowest desired frequency and
fed with open or ladder line is being call the center fed zepp by many..
I've also heard it called the Double Zepp. But the Doublet would be
better terminology to use. In any event he would be talkig about a dipole
I assume cut for 80m fed in the center with open wire parallel line of
some sort and used with a tuner on all bands.
