Model changes were made so instead of a single place for the grommet to rest there was a track which can fit the grommet in six different positions traveling down the shaft of the spinner. This adjustability should allow a balance to be found where the grommet can keep the spinner from swinging wildly (low) and a place where the neoprene can soften the impacts (high). Once a place is found where the grommet is most effective the  location can be coded into the model. For the second animation the six locations of the grommet are shown occupied by a virtual grommet but it should be noted that the actual neoprene object from the hardware store has a hole in the center.
