Default PSU connectors

hi all

i need some help on connectors

i am building a dac with separate power supply (separate boxes)

i am looking for connectors (ideally circular) to connect the psu to the dac, it requires a 12 way connector

i had a look at some industrial circular sockets & plugs in farnell but they are too expensive i.e 5 each which means about 20 in total

so i thought i could use those cheap plastic ones which come with budget equipment (normally to secure the mains cable) and make my own cable by attaching 12 wires together. the connection in that case will be permanent

the problem is i dont know how these connectors are called

they are normally made out of rubbery material and you can bend them open to mount your cable in, and then once you push in the panel hole , it becomes tight and grips the cable very well. its some sort of clip-type

any help will be appreciated
thanks
