    thick panel grommets

    Hi,

    can anyone tell me where I can get some grommets that take the thickness of our panels, circa 5mm wall thickness rather than the standard 1.6mm that are normally available.


    many thanks

    Only place I know is here Al UK Manufacturers and Stockists Of Rubber Grommets Problem is they have a minimum £30 (I think) order. What you need is someone local that can collect and post for you. I have done it in the past, but I don't get down that way much now.

    As Chris said they have minimum orders and minimum quantities too.
    Quite limited sizes available mine were 25mm panel hole diameter, I think I used 8mm panel thickness with cladding.
    Centre hole size 15mm from memory.
    I'll probably seal the holes with RTV where necessary when I'm happy with everything.
    I had to buy 25 I think.

    Hi Al, As above, but also have a look out for your local autojumble or car show/meet, they often have stalls selling such things, plus many other small items that can be a pain to find
