Default Trying to find a Vans part

Iím trying to find a part shown in the RV-14 plans that I want to use on my cabin heat cable attachment on my RV-6A. Picture attached shows part number VA-181-1, but that is not found on Vans site. Anyone know where I can find this part?

What you want is a "bug nut": https://shop.vansaircraft.com/cgi-bi...oduct=wire-nut

I think it's also called a "B" Nut and can be found at Aircraft Spruce and other hardware sites.

Aircraft spruce also has a lot cheaper option, check out "wire stop" Not quite as nice but only .95 $ I just used one for my cabin heat.
