Main Question or Discussion Point

NOTE: Originally posted on Tom's Hardware Forums. Double-posted here for better exposure.

I'm designing a little switch box to wire up a PS3's RCA cables into a 5.1 system that uses 3 3.5mm stereo inputs from my PC, but I'm having a hard time finding naked female connectors (i.e. Just the metal jack) - all the ones I can find have huge rubber or plastic things with stress relief. These are just going into a Radioshack project box, so I don't want that stuff.

I don't know enough about the different types to find what I'm looking for on Digikey, but if someone can point me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated.

Need:

6x 3.5mm stereo female "bare"
2x RCA female "bare"

alibaba.com has hundreds of 3.5 mm jacks, and RCA jacks also.

You'll have to look through them to find one that meets your needs.

A completely bare jack has nothing to attach to for physical mounting. When you push the male part in, what prevents the female jack from moving?
