I'm attempting to use the 'Made of Clone' method to create a dynamic cable that can be moved by Nulls connected to each end of the cable. The intention is to have the cable swing as the nodes move and also so that the cable can be dragged around the floor, colliding with other cables and also self colliding. The nodes ideally will be aligned to splines as guides.

Using Xpresso I've managed to attach nodes at both ends of the 'made of clones' cable (see attached screen shot).

The problem is the nodes current follow the position of the clone it is attached to and not the other way around as intended.

Any thoughts on an Xpresso fix or an alternative method to connect Nulls to the cable ends and the cable hand from them would be very welcome. Would be great to finally put an answer on the Net for others to follow.
