Italian term or phrase: "capofisso a cuneo"
Any ideas about this expression? It is in an instruction manual for mounting an antenna:

4) Il tamburo (“a”) per la fune di sollevamento è comandato da un motore autofrenante (“b”); la fune (“c”) è ancorata al tamburo mediante un capofisso a cuneo (“d”).

Any suggestions much appreciated.
