Controllers

This question is regarding all controllers that have the grommet(if is called that in this case may be a different word I'm looking for but I tried searching controller cord grommet found nothing pretty much) that the cord goes through such as the Sega Genesis controller. I know the NES controller doesn't have one.

 

The closest thing I can find is this

Found here https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/cable-grommets-grommet-strips/0543282/ but that really isn't what I'm looking for.

 

 

 

 

So I guess my first question is what is it called if I'm calling it the wrong thing and next question is there a cheap after market supplier of the right ones or generic ones that will work for most cords?

NM,

 

I just thought to search strain relieve grommet and found this

found here

So i know what to search for now, I just gotta find ones that will match up. It would still help if anyone already knew a direct replacement that fits for Sega Genesis controllers and looks original.

I figured I'd share in case anyone else was looking for something similar.

They work!

When you need to replace joystick cables and need to do it in a professional manner this works all the way.

I was looking for this when I was designing my 7800/2600 controller. Also, you are right nintendo didn't use them. So neither will I, Muhwhahaha!
