I'm not aware of a retailer that sells them. But if you need some I usually have some extra.

Yes, I saw the picture, but I'm a little unclear. So all I need is a mudring with a 2'x2' piece of VB behind it? Do I just cut a hole in the VB and pull the cables through?

Yes. But a mudring with a sheet of plastic doesn't always work out the way you want it to. The insulators may end up pulling it tight and not leaving you any room beyond the mudring for you cabling.

If using a mudring use the formed vapours that I show. This will give you something to keep the cables curled up in.

If using a metal box, use a sheet of plastic.
