Default Servo plug safety clips

Somewhere I saw a plastic clip that hold the male and female servo plugs together. Anyone know who sells these?

I have used shrink tubing and even tied them together with dental floss. But the clips are best if you will need to take the connections apart often.

google: servo connector safety retainer clip

and you'll get a couple dozen places that sell them

Side Note: If you use any connections that use non-standard gauge wire, these can fail. I use them ... love them... but for critical connections ( i.e. battery to switch )
I'd use something more permanent.

Or if you or a friend has a 3D printer, you can print them yourself. Several examples on Thingiverse. Petg filament works great for this application. And you can have any color you want....
