2600: A Heyco bushing compression tool.. used to install power cord (or
other cable) protective bushings in metal panels.
Heyco bushings are those plastic inserts installed around power cords to
securely anchor them in metal panels of appliances and other equipment.
The cord is placed in the bushing shell and the tool is used to compress the
bushing so the barbed body of the bushing can be inserted into the panel
When the tool is removed, the bushing expands slightly, gripping the edges
of the panel hole to provide a secure mechanical attachment.
Despite the fairly simple design of the Heyco bushings, they're not easily
installed or removed from a panel, particularly from the outside (power cord
side) of an appliance.
Some Heyco bushings include additional strain relief features to promote
reliability of the power cord/cable.
