Rubber Gromits

I was just wondering where you guys get your rubber gromits for your water cooling setup, for those that use them.

I have 1/2" ID tubing and need probably a 3/4" rubber gromit to run them through my case but I can't seem to find any. Are you guys going through a specialty online store or something for them and if so which one?

Rubber Gromitts

Lowes, Home Depot or any Hardware store should probably carry them.

or you can make your own from small rubber tubing, just cut a slit down the middle of one side.

Thanks that's exactly what I was looking for, I must have just not been looking in the right areas for them .

Home Depot has a rubber grommet that will fill a 3/4 hole saw perfectly. The 1/2" tube goes right through for a snug fit. Most likely, HD will be cheaper.

You could use 1/8 inch vacuum/windshield washer tubing for a quick fix.

Can be bought at any auto/hardware stores, just cut the hose down the middle and fill the hole.

I was able to find it at a local Home Depot. I was just looking in the wrong sections. I was looking in plumbing and general hardware(brass gromits found here), but the rubber gromits are found in the electrical dept. And the employees didn't really know where they were either. It wasn't until I asked the 3rd different employee where to find them that I was directed to the correct location.

If you go to the hardware store visit the electrical section. I needed to drill 1" hole to accommodate a 3/4" OD tube. Make sure you know the OD of the tube, not the ID.
