Cable control - grommets [product tip]

The triple swivel ball connector by Hosmer usually contains a grommet, but over years or decades one of these may wear down.

Use rubbers, chewing gum or what?

Here is what I found out:

I slide them over the cable from the tiny end, not over the ball end. When I find myself without replacement grommets, I usually can round up some plasticine or otherwise sticky mass that is easy to deform and that stays in place, to temporarily fix the ball connector in place.
