Question Right angle SAE connector?

Doing a Google search, I see plenty of right angle powerlet plugs but no SAE's. Does such a thing exist? i have a SAE going into my tankbag to electrify it. The SAE sticks out too far. A right angle SAE would clean it up. Any sightings?

Make one

Aerostich heated gear is all SAE inside a pocket; it's only at the end of the first cord that there are other choices.

The SAE plug inside the pocket is zip-tied to a square poly-something tie point. These tie points are designed to be sewn to backpacks and have two slots to pass a webbing strap through. The result looks a little ad-hoc (if you spend much time looking at the inside of the pocket), but the result is a well-secured SAE connector with a very low profile.

Ain't no such thing, it's been asked for plenty and looked for even more.

Only solution I have come up with was a regular SAE connector instead of a panel mount coming out of a tankbag and ziptied through the fabric itself. I've even considered having custom sets made but it was cost prohibitive. Also, "SAE" connectors aren't universal, I have about half a dozen differently sized ones here, online or in a picture you would think they are all the same size, but they are not.

Some use 3mm, 4mm and 5mm bullets, and then you have the distance between the two bullets differing by up to 3mm. Sure, you can force practically all of them on one another but if you need to do it on a daily basis with a tankbag eventually the male portion of one will become brittle and literally fall off.

I've only found one specific set that feels more solid, the rubber outside is soft and pliable and has some give and flex to it. These are the ones I used to make custom jumper cables where you leave one hookup attached to the bike and the other part are the jumper cables themselves with one end being clamps and the other being the SAE connector you attach to the bike.
