Weatherproof junction box?

I had to cut the flat phone cord and power cable to my Track-It TV unit the other day to send it in for repair. I can splice the power cable back together fine, but need ideas on splicing the phone cord back together. It's a six conductor office type plug. I can use a phone "butt connector" with male plugs crimped onto both ends of the phone cord, but am wondering how to make this splice weatherproof as it'll be outside. I don't think shrink tubing will work due to the large size of the connector and small size of the wire.

Ideas?

Find a local telephoneman and ask if he has a couple of Scotchloks he could donate. Use to use them all the time on telephone wire outside. They're jelly filled and water doesn't bother them.

I searched all over Grainger for what you're describing, but couldn't find them. I found well splice kits with shrink tubing and some other stuff, but not what you were talking about. Got a link by any chance?
