Default Show me your waterproof heatstick connections

I am upgrading my elements in my keggle and cleaning up the look of everything. Right now I have the coupling and JB weld solution. However, I don't like the look of it and am looking for ideas. I have seen the junction box idea, while I like it, I have a feeling I'm going to run into leaks. Looking for some ideas.

Thanks,
Brent

are you talking about a movable heatstick, or a kettle mounted heating element?

Sorry, they are mounted in my keggle. Should have elaborated. Last time I did it I used JB Weld. However that just seemed to make a mess. Maybe this time I'll use the Stik. Might do a cleaner job.

I used a coupling for mine, but only sealed it up minimally with the JB weld and jammed a female adapter into the end. Then I screwed a cord grip into that.

End result looks like this (on the left):
