How do I enforce multiple springs connecting at the same point

I’m confused as to why a few of my connections between springs aren’t staying together. I have all of the cable geometries sent into the spring from a line function and then into force objects. Then i sent the cable geometry and the spring geometry to the geometry function in kangaroo.

The simulation seems to work as expected (in deviating from the initial position due to tension in the springs). But a few of the connections won’t keep all the springs together.

Screen shots of the simulation and the file are attached. Along with the file to create the strut and cable geometry along with the file for the solver.

Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Thanks,
