Battery cable extension

hi folk im in need of extending the battery cable on a short term measure from the outboard to the isolation switch, all this will be housed inside the console but I still want to make good connection and keep them water/ moisture tight.
The trouble I have is that I don't have the correct crimping tool so was hoping there may be some inline joint connector like the below but with grub screws like you get on battery cable connections.
Auto Marine Cable Joiners - Demon Tweeks

hope you all can help and offer advice on this aswell as a junction box / housing to keep moisture out.
regards graham

Use straight crimp as shown, and solder using a blowlamp, then 2 lots of heat shrink tubing, preferably the epoxy lined!

... and stagger the joints by a few inches, so that you avoid shorting out if the heatshrink fails due to the joints rubbing together.

Well, hot glue lined, but I see where you're coming from...
