Kettle electrical connections

What are people using to bolt* to the side of the kettle/HLT in order to contain the wiring?

Happy brew year :drunk:
I've just got the plug going straight onto the element pins.
I've seen some people use an empty caulking tube with the nozzle cut off and an electric project box with
a hole cut out to fit the element nut over. :thumb:

I enjoy a glass of wine each night for its health benefits. The other glasses are for my witty comebacks and flawless dance moves.

I just have a stainless steel shroud. Saves liquid splashing on the connection, but normal kettle connections are safe on a kettle so I see no reason they wouldn't be safe on a boiler set up.
