    That rubber piece that stops the cable from kinking.

    'strain relief' is the operative word you should look for.

    I don't think you will find that small a strain relief. Those are custom molded onto the cable.

    I bought a kit of strain relief "tubes" and clip on grommets a few years ago.. I cannot remember where I bought it from...yet.. ;)

    Also, the ones that small were in a tubing kit, not an electrical kit.

    SPRINGS work very, very well for strain relief. Finding a spring of proper inside diameter will likely be much easier. Just cover it with your choice of colored shrink wrap, and your good to go.
