Cable issues . Attaching to socket on skeletal mesh doesn't seem to work. Help?

Hey guys.

I am building a simple grappling hook with the cable component on the standard mannequin model. Makign the cable work and launch the character is no trouble… What i can’t do for the life of me is get the stupid cable to come out of the hand socket I have added on the skeletal mesh.


I have parented the cable to the mesh model.
Added a socket to the right hand and made it a mesh socket.
Then added that socket as the parent socket on the cable.
I tried both the parent and the cable end and it still comes out of the groin :slight_smile: But that’s not the game I would like to make :stuck_out_tongue: Thoughts?

Thanks for your time !

Anyone have any thoughts?
