A Guide To The Many Practical Uses Of A Grommet Strip

By Debby Davis

A lot of things for sale nowadays have so many names. Simple items can have very many names for just one thing. An example of this is the grommet strip.

This strip is actually just a fancier name for edging or edge protector. The first of these kinds of edgings that came out for commercial use was done for car doors. Car doors sometimes have protective plastic or rubber grommets on the edge to prevent denting and chipping due to hard door slams. This kind of edge protection nowadays can be found on a lot of things.

Things that have a tendency for impact or prone to impact will usually have this edging or grommet. Look at tennis racquets and badminton racquets for example where it is used around the racquet head. This protects the racquet from scratches and dents which may affect the resale value of the item.

High quality tables also use this item particularly during shipping and transport. Edge protectors are put on tables with high gloss finishes to protect further the paint and gloss. These are removeable and taken out when the table arrives at its delivery point.

Thus whatever edge needs to be protected this kind of protection can be used. Actually its applications and uses are best left to the imagination. You can buy it from any hardware store or sports shop even in different colors, sizes and textures.

Therefore the next time you see an edge protector you will recall the technical term for it. Likewise you will also remember that it is not only for car door use but for many other items as well. In fact, why not try one on the edge of your laptop, or your cell phone right now to give it added protection?
