Here is my DIY GK splitter, you could get a regular GK 13 cable and cut it in half, then fit a GK socket into a small box and solder wires.
Looks a bit rough inside, but it works great !

I basic question - Ss there any way of differentiating between the colours e.g. multiple yellow and red with numbering on the pins ? Are the cores of regular GK leads usually numbered?

Use a multimeter to test each end for 0 ohm  continuity on each wire

Of course, continuity makes sense anyways.
