Cable connector shields 4955 - 4956

Easy connector shielding without replacing the whole connector.

These sleeves can create a more continuous connection where cable shields are interrupted.

They can be mounted afterward and are very flexible not only in lengths and the bending but also in diameter. For extra strength these can be clamped with cable clamps, tiewraps.

When you want the connection water tight, you can cover these with shrinking sleeves.


  • In any size, diameter or length
  • Conical version available to also create bigger steps in diameter
  • Also possible with inside high flexible copper strips for higher currents

From 16 mm diameter and on the sleeves can be reinforced with 0.12 mm copper strips. These strips are stuck on the inside of the sleeve, but on special order other connection parts are available.

The elasticity of the diameter is about 1:2, please take care that the strips need some initial contact force. The best is to send the cable assembly to us so that we can check the right fitting or contact our technical staff.


These cable connector shields can be made in any desired length. You can specify the length at the end of the part number. For example, to have a quotation for Cable connector shields with a diameter of 8 mm and a length of 50 mm you can specify the part number as follows: 4955-8-50
