Default Replacing fluorescent fixture

I have two, four foot T12 light strips (fixtures). I've been slowly learning how to replace these. I got new ones, but can't figure out how to get the hard plastic grommet for the feed wires going into the existing strip. The thing is very ridgid. Also got a small aluminum clip or sumpthin in a small platic bag next to the ballast with the new one. No idea what that's for. Any help appreciated.

Sometimes you can pry the plastic grommet out with needle nose pliers or using a screwdriver. There is sometimes a spot where you can pry the grommet open or out. The aluminum piece is probably a clip that holds in the junction/ ballast cover. It slides into a little groove on one end and then the clip goes in like a little hole on the other end. Some just snap in others might have to twist.
