Need help with finding a cable/handle

Hey, Im not sure if its the right place to ask, but Im looking for something similar to this: https://agenaastro.com/gso-flexible-...nd-handle.html I need to connect the cable to something like this: https://imgur.com/a/4i013YH (The half circle half flat knob). I need to make/buy something like that, does anyone have any ideas what I should look for? And anyone knows what is the knob type I showed in the picture? Thanks.

What is wrong with the slow motion cable you linked? Knobs like that are frequently used on camera tripods.

It doesn't ship to my country unfortunately, I need something to buy locally here or from ebay/aliexpress.

They are on ebay. The seller does not specifically exclude Israel, so I would ask him.

Can you give me a link/help me search for it on ebay? I already asked the seller, waiting for a reply, but usually its like 50-100$ for shipping only, which is definitely not worth it.

I find only one result and the seller is not shipping to my country, how many results did you find?
I don't think I'll be able to find it a slow motion cable, thats why Im looking for just something similar as it seems like something pretty universal and not specific for mounts etc.

Do you have any friends that travel or know an airline pilot? I often carry things for friends when I travel out of the country.

Its a long shot but I can maybe try that in case I find anyone, Im going to a small house stuff shop now in my city and hopefully there will be something useful I can build/use there.
