These minor items are so cheap we don't charge for a few of them. If you want a large quantity, you can buy them by the bottle.

Ferrules 5 mm

Ferrules help keep the cut housing end aligned with its stop hardware, helping reduce cable friction.

They are essential for index housing to keep it from fraying.
