Is there such a bus-like connector?

Greetings, first post, and sorry if this is obvious. Creating a harness that needs to distribute 5v power out to a device that has several components that require 5v power. I want to limit the wires out to the device to just two, but tap off those two for several components. A terminal block/bus bars/special board are really overkill and unwieldy in this application (very little space and no place to mount anything). Basically, I need a very tiny rectangular connector that works like a power strip - two wires in, and multiple two-wire plugs out. Is there such an animal?

Thanks for any help advice you can give!

Hello cbarry, welcome to the DigiKey TechForum.
I was unable to find any tiny 2 wire connector, that would have multiple 2 wire connectors to plug into it, to act like a distribution block. Maybe one of the engineers can add to this post with an idea for your application.

Thanks for looking - I’ve been looking too, and it seems like a useful kind of connector, and that surely someone else has a similar need, but I just do not now how to best search for it.
How would you tackle this requirement of a micro-powerstrip?

The basic function of joining a single conductor to several would seem like the domain of splice connectors. Packaging several such into a modular device is a somewhat less general case, though extant examples can be found in the form of Y-adapters for audio applications (3.5mm, RCA, etc). Depending on context, something of that sort might possibly be appropriated for the task.

Thanks Rick. That led me to using some of your words and found
this kind of thing:
