It defines a grommet as: ‘Plastic or rubber plug used to conceal a screw fixing. Alternatively, a ring of rubber or plastic that lines a hole to protect electrical cable from chafing. A blind grommet incorporates a thin web of plastic or rubber that seals the hole until the web is cut to provide access for a cable ’.
Grommets for electrical cables are sometimes referred to as insulating bushing or bushing insulator. A bushing is a type of insulating material that permits an electrical conductor to travel safely through a conductor without triggering electrical contact.
