What you are looking for is called sleeving.

Suggest teflon sleeve tubing for this. You want a size that fits easily over the leads.

Maybe he is thinking of the clear plastic tubing they used on transistor radios.

You'll find all manner of things that will work---clear tubing, "shrink-fit". etc.

The so-called "spaghetti" from the old days now comes in many colors

My current brute-force answer is to stock shrink-fit in a wide variety of sizes
