To be honest , i have seen several damage with these , mostly have broken in section between threads to enclosure and wrench nut , might be also to much torque at assembly , but I have also seen air buble in mould at broken cross section .
Special at PA (polyamide ) glands light gray .. there is another typ which is dark grey or dark blue are made from nylon which is much stronger. But these plastics are all sensitive on low temperature (ice diving) cca (-20-30°C) and might broke at accidently hit .
From that fact a become rule that all machines in factory have glands like Klem have .
That is only my view

Forgive me if this has been asked before, but why did H shift from the metal Agros to these polyamide glands? Was it more of a cost cutting issue?
Probably because they cost like $2 vs. the proper Agro for about $15...
Anyone got a link to a source if these polyamide ones? $2 sounds attractive to me.
Note that nut and oring needs to be purchased separately. They also have metal ones and without cable relief.
Watch out shipping while checking out, web is trying to convince you to get overnight.
More is available directly from Sealcon
I contacted them and they sold me like 5 pieces. I wanted elongated metric thread and I could not find it anywhere. No problem, nice people.
