The expanded main component
      This is the workhorse of the CSTO kit - the "silicone housing on holdout" - it is stretched quite a lot and when the holdout is removed, it snaps down to a much smaller dimension offering insulation and protection to your cable.

CSTP cold shrink
      This is the technical name of just that silicone component:  CSTP-25-OS-VFM.

     The other components of the kit - the braided ground wire, the spring and the adhesive strips. 

     This product is remarkably simple to install - see the following installation video:
