Anti-kink Grommet — Function and Use

In the most varied of environments, the anti-kink grommet is there to prevent single or combined leads and cables at outgoing and crossover points from kinking. It also creates an optically appealing and secure connection between two sections. Thanks to the longitudinal shape, it forms a flexible and protective outlet and cross-over when – for instance at a housing outlet – cables are to be exactly combined and guided onwards in a cable sleeve. Aside from its anti-kink function, the anti-kink grommet ensures that dust, liquids and other contaminants are prevented from penetrating a housing.

Anti-kink grommets are typically used in household appliances and electrical tools such as drills, garden shears and sanding/sawing appliances. The flexible, yet sturdy rubber of the anti-kink grommet ensures long-term robustness and ensures both safety and protection in challenging fields of application, such as in forestry, horticulture and the construction industry. Bushings at housings, walls and cabinets represent a further field of application for anti-kink grommets. Here, the anti-kink grommet provides for a tidy finish and protects both cable and leads from kinking
