Cable Tow

The Cable Tow is part of the dress of a candidate in which he agrees to go to the aid of a Brother with all his power..."if it be within the length of his tow rope.

The length of rope is symbolic of the first brother's abilities.

 

It is defined also as a cable's length, which is symbolically measured as 3 miles for an Entered Apprentice.

With its 2 ends, it binds a Mason to the Fraternity as well as bonds the Fraternity to the Mason.
