Title:
GROMMET
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2011/155088
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A grommet provided with line insertion tube sections is configured so that, when an engagement recess section thereof which is adapted to be engaged with a vehicle body and which is formed in the outer periphery of the grommet is engaged with the peripheral edge of a through-hole in a vehicle body panel to mount the grommet in the through-hole, the line insertion tube sections are prevented from being caught by the peripheral edge of the through-hole. The configuration prevents the line insertion tube sections from being bent toward the engagement recess section and firmly gripped between the peripheral edge of the through-hole and the vehicle body engagement recess, and this enables the grommet to be reliably mounted in the through-hole. A grommet is provided with: a center tube section provided along the center axis of the grommet and allowing a wire harness to be inserted therethrough; a large-diameter tube section interconnected with the outer peripheral surface of the center tube section via an annular connection section and surrounding the center tube section with a space provided therebetween; an annular engagement recess section adapted to be engaged with a vehicle body and provided on the outer peripheral surface of the large-diameter tube section; and line insertion tube sections provided so as to protrude from positions which are offset from the peripheral edge of the opening in the annular connection section and which surround the center tube section, the line insertion tube sections allowing a cable and/or a hose to be inserted therethrough. Ribs are provided between the peripheral wall of the center tube section and the center axis-side outer peripheral surfaces of the line insertion tube sections. The ribs reinforce the center axis-side base section of the line insertion tube sections.
