I'm definitely interested in making something like that.
Here's one I did... obviously not the best photos...
you just jam the rubber piece onto the threads of the casing. it fits very snugly.
before that though, I cut down the white "insulator protector thing" to the size necessary, then i use puddy epoxy and basically mold it around the entire area covering all the wires and connections and filling the inside of the connector. You can choose to use the white insulator protector, or just put the two sides right over the epoxy.. either way works well.
the connector being filled with epoxy provides excellent strain releaf, and prevents wires from crossing or shorting. Then i super glue the two sides to the epoxy and push the rubber thingy on.. as long as you dont over fill the inside you should be able to get every thing flush and very very strongly held together.
