DIY Tankbag Electrical Question

I have a wolfman something or other tankbag and I want to run an electric connection into it for charging the cell phone etc. Somewhere I have seen DIY grommets for passing the wire through but searching my bookmarks high and low and Googling around I am coming up empty.

Anyone know of a source for something like that? I'd have sworn I saw them not long ago at one of the big on-line retailers but I am having no luck today.

Thanks

Eastern Beaver sells them, along with lots of other places. It is a Powerlet product, SAE bulkhead item # PTB-001.

Or you can go directly to Powerlet and get it there.

Thank you both for the prompt reply! I think I had seen them at EB - funny thing is I was trying to find these things so I could then place the correct order with him! This simplifies things.

If you look around a bit, someone on here posted a link about an SAE connector for an RV that about $2.

You might do a search if you like to save $$....

If it's a budget thing ( like with me ) , I ran a tri-cig-plu up from under my seat ( mounted a single plug under seat) into the tankbag, there I have a 2 usb plug in one of the cig plugs. It works greaty for what I need.

I will do something nicer one day
