A low cost device for reducing the audible noise level generated from movable sheet metal gates or baffles in a xerographic copying or printing machine is disclosed. The proposed device provides a bearing membedelastomer grommet combination which is mounted into a side plate for receiving the pivot pin of a metal gate to reduce the clearance between the pivot pin and the side plate, thereby isolating the bearing/grommet from the side plate.
