Is one option, female 1/8" (3.5mm) mono jack (TS) is what you're looking for.

 

Thanks, but I am looking for 1/4" plugs.  No one sells the 1/4"?

There are tons of 1/4 jacks.... Check here: http://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine.aspx?Keyword=1%2f4+mono+jack

Are you sure you want 1/4? They are huge and will most likely not fit inside the cups.....

You linked a picture of 1/8" jacks and no 1/4" plugs, Neutrik makes great TRS plugs, and a few jacks even.

I got my type 1 paracord in the mail yesterday, but it's going to be hard to thread the wire through now that I broke my finger at work during the night! Ugh

 

Is is weird that building that cable was one of the first things I was worried about not being able to do? Haha

Does anybody use Digikey? Their collection seems to be huge but I can't navigate it.. 

 

Specifically: Heatshrink... what am I looking at? Is there anything here thats similar to what Heatshrink.com sells?

I don't like using Digikey either.  For heatshrink, I highly recommend avoutlet.com.  Cheapest place I have found Techflex heatshrink by the foot.  High quality with no hideous writing.

I usually use these guys: http://www.redco.com/

I do too, love these guys to death but they don't have USB Connectors, Digikey does and id like my order to be all from the same place if possible.. Also, they don't have 3:1 heatshrink...

DigiKey is a great supplier, if you can't navigate menus and contextual searches you will have a bad time. We buy about 90% of our components at work through them.

I just ordered a bunch of Viablue stuff from AVOutlet last week. They shipped it out quick, and the shipping is inexpensive and fast to Canada!
