Spring-Fast Military: NASM22529/2 Series

Cage Code: 0HES0

The MIL SPEC Series per NASM22529/2 offers a versatile steel substrate encapsulated with lubricious fusion bonded epoxy
for superior abrasion and chemical resistance. It has enhanced grip strength and is 2 axis conformable.
It adds a sacrificial polymer cushion as a softer and sacrificial wire interface for even greater wire protection.

NASM22529/2 Series is the NASM22529/1 plus a sacrificial polymer cushion.

Key Benefits

  • U.S. Defense Dept. FAA Acceptable: NASM22529/2 and National Stock Number: Federal Supply Code 5325.
  • Superior performance: encapsulated stainless steel core: outperforms plastic grommets.
  • Snap on installation lowers costs 49% vs. grommets with glue.  Watch the 4 min. video below.
  • Improves efficiency 9.5x – due to fewer steps in workflow.

  • Military use and in service worldwide on airframes, wings, tails, bulkheads, webs, lightening holes, APU’s, avionics,
    radars across tactical vehicles, helicopters, jets, military transports and miscellaneous tactical equipment
  • Aerospace use on business jets and general aviation aircraft: IFE, seating, galleys, toilets, bulkheads, avionics, etc.
  • Straight edges, knockouts, access panels and penetrations
  • Small radii inside or outside corners


The old nylon grommet with glue is old, inefficient and costly.  DTi has a better way.

  • Epoxy encapsulated stainless steel substrate.
  • Snaps on fast with finger pressure
  • Installs continuously with single axis conformity
  • Self locking with strong retention – no adhesives
  • Simpler install: no adhesive, fixturing, curing, clean up or OSHA concerns,
    reduces installed costs
  • Maintenance is far easier due to its ease of application and removal
  • Customization available (lengths, colors and print)
