Device Technologies’ Spring-Fast® grommet edging will save OEMs at least 49% of their total install costs because it can be applied with finger pressure and grips securely without glue. Since the 1940s, OEMs have used molded nylon grommets like MS21266 to protect wiring. The standard operating procedure has been to secure these strips to edges with glue because nylon grommets do not have any inherent grip. This lack of grip is compounded by its method of manufacture which causes the strip to suffer from either coil set or straight set. This tendency makes the nylon want to bend away from most edges which can cause the bonding operation to fail.
