A strain relief provides an inexpensive "value added" solution to almost any cable assembly. Strain reliefs are a discrete component that are injection molded from a flexible resin, usually PVC. The strain relief is designed to have a hole size the same diameter of the cable being used and is held into place with a slot and flange. The strain relief provides structure and support in the stressed portion where the cable jacket ends and the connection is made to the component. This portion of the cable is where most of the stress is placed and the most damage is noticed.
