Default power cable clamps for control boxes?

I just realized that I am missing a single item for my HERMS build.

Where do you electric folks pick up the cable clamps that hold the main power cable feeding into your control boxes? (and are they just called "cable clamps" or do that have a nore unique name that I can search for online?)

I walked through the electrical aisles at Lowe's the other day and saw nothing there.

They are called cord grips. I found some by the conduit at Home Depot. They only had two sizes though...

Mcmaster has a large selection but shipping for a single item from them is killer.

Is this what they look like? If so, then my eyes were scanning for the wrong thing when I walked through Lowe's.

I'm using a male coupling (electrical conduit type in the electrical aisle) threaded through a hole from the inside of the box. A similar female coupling threads onto that from the outside. The power wires are fed through a piece of 90 degree (gradual bend) plastic conduit which seats into the female coupling thats threaded and snug on the box.

I believe they are called 'strain relief connectors'. I get them at my local electrical supply shop.

What size do you need? I might have spares from my old panel.
