Those are really good for going through panels. A gromet could be cut  
through with vibrations, but these mount solid. Plus they provide a  
nice place to tap in for power.


You can see I used two here (first pic only shows one, second pic they  
are all the way back on the 2nd firewall just below the windscreen),  
one was constant battery power and the other was switched with  
ignition. It was really nice to be able to just tap right in whever
