ve.direct cable through bulkhead suggestion

Hi, I need to pass a VE.Direct cable from the battery box through a waterproof gland to the Cerbo GX. I want to make as small of a hole as possible but the ve.direct cables have a wide adapter on both ends. It has been suggested by victron not to make our own cables, but the cable is rather small compared to the ends and the ends require a much bigger hole than just the cable diameter. What is the right thing to do? Do the premade cables have any shielding? Does it make sense to cut one in half and crimp it after making a smaller hold just for the cable? Thanks

For myself I see no issue in cutting the cable and rejoining it. you really dont have any option. The cables are not shielded, as far as I know
