Yeah I tried that one aswell I've just been struggling to remove the grommet. It's a lot harder than the first one. What's the best method?

I've removed it but the grommet looks designed to just hold one wire. So how do I protect the second wire from rubbing against the metalwork?

What if I was to slit it open one side and wrap it round both wires then just push it back into the hole. Would something like that work?
