Can the hive mind tell me where I can source the meter tail grommets that pack a 16mm insulated/sheathed tail up to 25mm? The Henley block knockouts are for 25mm cable and I want to maintain the IP rating for existing 16mm.
I may use heatshrink as a solution but I know these things exist because I’ve seen DNO/Meter fitters with them in the past

thanks in advance

Thanks @James for this... its subtly different I think since these collars are for identification, not IP... will continue to trawl...

I've never felt the need to improve the IP rating of a Henley block. Am I missing out on something ?

the knockouts in the thermoset plastic are for 25mm.Some have terminals at the top and bottom and a combination of top entry and existing 16mm tails leaves a tiny gap. Not unsafe, but ingressable.
Maybe I should have mounted them sideways 😤

Ah right. I've only ever used the ones with all the entries on one side of the block

Click Henley blocks only have entry from one angle. Decent kit but are lacking for a decent top entry.

Strike me down, but the proteus blocks have replaceable shields for unused ways.... handy if you take out tails and are left with a hole.

strike me down again for suggesting wrapping insulating tape around the cable to bulk it out a bit
