Garbage Disposal Strain Relief Clamp

  

garbage-disposal

 

The opening for the electric power cord to exit the bottom or side of a garbage disposal housing has sharp edges.

The concern is that these sharp edges, due to use, vibration, reaching for items under the sink, or over time, may cut into the electric cord and cause a short or spark.

The correction is to add the appropriate grommet or strain relief clamp to protect the electric cord and prohibit any movement against the sharp edges of the housing.
