    Hi, I've been working with electrical devices for a while now (very simple things) and have never known what the little black thing that keeps the wire from being pulled out of the housing. It's just a simple little thing that I cannot seem to figure out the name of. I've tried cord holder, cord plug, cord harness, etc. and all come up with something else. What I'm trying to do is take it out so i can put a new cord in since the old one is broke but i can't figure out how to do that without knowing the name of the thing.

    edit: right after posting this the word came to mind. Thanks to those who read this anyways.

    I suspect it is more of the press/pop in style that goes in a hole usually with flat on two sides?

    A grommet is typically a hole feedthrough protector that doesn't grip the cord.

    It is also something that Marine recruits often fell thru when they screwed up (according to our senior drill instructor back in the day!).
