The female sockets on those pairs seem properly heat shrunk, but I'm not seeing the male connector pins anywhere.

Instead of heat skinking your kcy have Robb build a right angle jumper cable.  I did this and it works great and no strain relief worries.

Or Home Depot and if you are lucky and have a Harbor Freight near you they have heat shrink cheap... 8ft for 2 bucks

Hey I didn't know Home Depot carries it!  Is it available in small quantities and is it located in the electrical aisle?

Bean, where's the Harbor Freight?  Might swing by next time I'm out your way.

Yep, right here in WashPA :) It's right next to Home Depot actually ;) I'm going to both places after my dentist appointment in a few hours. I'll give you a txt and let you know what they have. I want to get some for my NBob KCY. Whichever one I end up keeping 8) I'm fine with the one I have now, but since you gave me the option to choose, my ocd is making me check out the other one that you have lol ;)

Gotcha, thanks for the idea. I'm talking about my NBob KCy though ;) Its 18" long, and since I don't ever run omnis, and the largest split I ever run is NOS, I wanted the other 9" of my KCY cable>Binder heat shrunk. However, when I did that, I wasn't happy with it at ALL, since Harbor Freight's heatshrink is way too stiff once its dried. I injured myself AND the NBob KCY when trying to remove the heatshrink :P ;D I sent it to Nicky, and he redid the Mogami cabling, put some techflex on the last 9" of cabling to the Binder, put a new Binder plug on, and also some new threads on the Collette's :) So even though I gouged my thumb and fukd up the cable, it ended up getting all brand new parts and some techflex, which I am love with ;) So it worked out better in the end ;D Minus the throbbing thumb for a few days lol 8)
