Cable sealing grommet provides added strain relief

Andrew Fletcher, Technical Director for Anixter Component Solutions tells us: "We are always looking to introduce new and innovative products to the market that offer our customers both technical and commercial benefits."

And true to his word, the recently launched Click Fit snap-in protection grommet lives up to those expectations.

The product is an IP rated, two-component seal with integral cable anchorage and something completely new to the market. It is compact, self-adjusting to its surrounding wall thickness and snaps into position. It has a waterproof membrane seal, which requires very little effort to install and saves up to 90% on assembly time compared to conventional threaded cable glands.

Installation does not require tools and an integral pop-out membrane provides a permanent seal until pierced by a cable or pipe. Each size of grommet accommodates a wide range of cable and pipe diameters; for example, the M25 can be used for cables and pipes ranging in diameter from 4 to 13mm. Because of its compact design, the Click Fit grommet only protrudes 5.7mm outside the enclosure.
