Presumably ones shaped and sized correctly for the drop wire rather than ones designed for the round thicker copper.

I think I know the ones you mean now. I had a Google search.

I wonder if Kelly's provide the workers with these to use? Or at least in my area...

Uhm..

Which should be the correct cleats?

Ones that have the same cross-sectional profile as that of the cable and match the cable's diameter.

Those that have been used look like what would be appropriate for mains voltage, 5 ampere twin and earth, typically used for domestic lighting circuits.

Good eye, I hadn't quite comprehended just how much bigger it was than it should be.

This is what mine looks like which still looks wrong to me, seems to have used the same for the inside and outside fibre which are different shapes.

Looks o.k., to me. (I don't think I could get one of my whiskers between the cleat and the cable sheath.)

You would, down the middle where the fibre is as its thinner than the sides where the support wires are, but its probably fine anyway.

After another look . . . Ah, I now see it.  :-[

I'm invested now,

Invested?  :-\  I suspect you intended to type "interested" but some autocorrection device decided that it knew best!  ::)

The simple answer is "just be sensible with it".  :)

In that case, I'll tell you my rule of paw . . .

Treat it as you would sensibly treat Cat5e cable and you won't go wrong.
