Hate to ask but ... What do you call Speaker Cable PANTS?

    Because it occasionally comes up when discussing the making of speaker cables, I tried searching Amazon-UK for "Speaker Wire Pants" and found nothing but various forms of Human Pants.

    However, when I search Amazon-USA, I get what I'm looking for -

    https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords=speaker+wire+pants&rh=i:aps,k:speaker+wire+pants

    https://www.amazon.com/Speaker-Wire-Pants-Gauge-Boot/dp/B004YUIW1Q

    I tried Cable Pants, Speaker Wire Pants, Speaker Wire Strain Relief, Cable Pants, Speaker Wire Boots, Speaker Cable Boots, and every other combination I could think of.

    I can only conclude that you call these things something else, or that they actually don't exist in the UK.

    Speaker Wire Boots came the closest, and that was simply to speaker cable that had Pants on them -

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/GearIT-Premium-Braided-Speaker-Plated-Black/dp/B071NP3X8P

    So clearly they exist, but what are they called???

    So, if you don't call the Speaker Wire Pants, or Speaker Cable Pants .... what do you call them??

    Of course the goal is to simply find a UK source that I can reference when I need to.

    OK, this is even stranger. When I search Google-UK for "Speaker Wire Pants", I come up with this Amazon-UK link -

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Speaker-Wire-Pants-Gauge-Boot/dp/B004YUIW1Q

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Speaker-Wire-Pants-Gauge-Boot/dp/B004YUIZE0

    But when I search Amazon for "Speaker Wire Pants", I get this -

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_s...electronics&field-keywords=speaker+wire+pants

    Of course, those Wire Pants are not currently available, but I would think something would come up on a search.

    OK, I guess if I need them in the future I can probably find some source of them, but they still seem very rare.

    Hellerman, would use terms like moulded forms and Y splitter . Trust the Americans to pick a memorable name.

    You talking about heat shrink cable sleeves?

    They aren't necessarily heat shrink. They are just Y-shaped 'pants' that join a large round cable and break out into two smaller individual wires.
