  1. The ornamental design for an electrical cable connector, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a top, left, front perspective view of an electrical cable connector showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a bottom, right, rear perspective view thereof;

FIG. 3 is another top, left, front perspective view thereof;

FIG. 4 is another bottom, right, rear perspective view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a front elevation view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a rear elevation view thereof;

FIG. 7 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 8 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 9 is a right side elevation view thereof; and,

FIG. 10 is a left side elevation view thereof.

The broken line portion of the figure drawings is included to show unclaimed subject matter only for the purpose of illustrating environment and forms no part of the claimed design.

In a preferred embodiment, the nature of this product is an electrical component that can take the form of an electrical cable connector for mounting to a cable.
