Lightbulb New frame sliders...? size gromment can i use?

I just put frame sliders on my bike. I use the putty method, and I say well done. Now that I have them on...I wanted to make it look much cleaner with some gromments on it. Where can I purchase them, and what size do I need?

Try Home Depot.

I don't think they're any grommets made just for framer sliders. It's gonna be a custom job, but any major hardware store should have something you can use....

this thread will give you some ideas...

If you cut them correctly, there should be a gap less then a 16th of an inch around the frame slider..

That's what I was thinking. If the hole was aligned and cut correctly there should be little to no gap around the slider. Certainly not enough for a grommet.

I used a laser pointer to mark mine.
