Cable gland

Picked up one of these (see pic) for next to nothing the other day.
Hope on of you good people can tell me how it fits.
I take it the flange on the threaded part goes through the hole and then the cap screws it tight? Do you make hole in the rubber bung for wires to go through.
Am I on the right track?
I know what the little grey thing is.

You drill the rubber then the ring compresses it onto the cable.
The ones I've seen have had screws or small bolts holding the flange down on the outside.

Ahh I see.
This one doesn't have any screw holes but could easily sort that.

Without any dodgy comments vaseline will help the cables go through the rubber.

When I went diving some of the lads would use KY Jelly on their seals, not the fish eating type though.

KY is Water based - better than vaseline for rubber etc
