how to secure romex from drywall into pvc box


I'm trying to bring romex from inside an interior wall into a 6x6x4 pvc box to begin a conduit that will go outside. I relocated the wires so the are just coming through a hole in the drywall. I thought I could just drill a hole in the back of the box, pull the romex in and continue into my conduit with THHN.

I'm being told I need something at the back of the box to secure the wires (2 individual wires, different circuits).

What do I need, and ideally, if you could give me a link to a 1/2" version at amazon, that would be ideal?

Thank you.
