Jeanette, you can get rubber grommets in various sizes from most hardware stores(you can cut the grommet to install if needed)...they will keep the wire from chaffing into a can also tape the wires or get some liquid electrical tape(great stuff for tool handles, rope ends ect..) and daub it around the hole to cover the edges of said hole
