Source for trim rings?


I have a cabinet that I'm going to use to house a TV and home theater components. I want to cut a 2" circular opening in the back panel to pass the cables and power cords through. To hide any roughness from the holesaw cut as well as protecting the cords from chafing, I'd like to finish the opening out with a plastic trim ring.

Can anyone suggest a source for such rings as I've not had any luck at all with online searches.

Thanks.

Electrical friction rings (bushings) would be ideal for your purpose.
Two pieces will screw together right through the 2" opening perfectly.

Gentlemen, your suggestions were spot on and have definitely helped me. It seems the magic word was "grommet" while all I could think of to describe what I wanted was "trim ring".

Thanks again for the fantastic suggestions.

What I showed costs around a dollar or two and is required by code for MY purpose, and is likely the correct piece to protect your wires as well as it is curved all around the opening. (Though probably not required by code in your case.)

Call me cheap but you could also use 1/4 or 3/8 inch flexible black split loom depending on the thickness of the board your cutting the hole out of. you would only need 6-12 inches at most. Just an idea that i've used before on a few things.

If I understand correctly, they have plenty of options in the electrical section at Lowes (metal and plastic, and several different diameters too).
