Lowes sells them as:

Ooops. My mistake.
I had googled for expansion couplings and I had not realized those that I
had found at Lowes (for half the price that I had had paid for mine) were
for electrical connectors. Thanks for pointing that out.
That also explains the low price (about $8), which alone should have
clued me in as mine was almost double that price.
So one of the cons of these 2" PVC (fluid) expansion couplings is cost.
