Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ral Other than the grommet washers Very Good
Yes, it will install a grommet, the supplied grommets are very thin, but will work under light loads.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chuckinaustin Works great
Wanted a grommet kit to install more grommets on plastic tarp. Did a little research and saw many of the tolls in the kits to be inferior, frail pieces. The installation tools with this kit are sturdy, well made heavy metal pieces. Also, the kit has real brass grommets that won't rust, unlike a lot of other kits with brass colored tin or steel grommets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steveinchantilly gromet kit is easy to use
Purchased this gromet kit so I could use bungee cords to secure a chaise lounge cover which the wind liked to remove. The instructions were easy to follow. Have only installed four, but I'm glad to have the remaining kit for future projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Producer great for keeping gloves on you during a job
Wrote a review under the 3/8 grommet refill kit - here's the picture of how to use this with gloves to keep them on you with a carabiner clip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne92 Works Well
The tool set works well. One problem I noticed was that the mandrel would stick hard in the grommet when I hammered it down solid. The first one I did took some effort to release the mandrel. After that I used a 7/8 box end wrench to knock the grommet free from the mandrel. I was doing this on a concrete floor in the garage so I would just remove the anvil and set the mandrel point on the floor, slide the wrench over the mandrel and smack the handle of the wrench right near the mandrel. It would pop the grommet free easily.
The ad info doesn't say how many grommets come with the kit but the "package quantity" says 48 total items so I was expecting more than 12 grommets. I needed more than that so I had to buy more grommets after I got the kit from an online order and saw that there were not enough with it for my project. My local store did have those in stock so I didn't have to place another online order and wait for that to arrive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JayO Helpful tip!
Was having a HUGE amount of difficulty hammering a hole through a thin layer of canvas. No sure if that was the ideal fabric but it was listed on the back of packaging with the rest of recommended materials so i expected it to work ... Finally came up with the idea to put the hollow punch into an electric drill and it worked like a charm!! Save me hours of time and frustration. Grommets were easily assembled once the holes were in place. Happy with my replacement canvas for the boat and ended up saving a lot of money doing it myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick357 Works well. Good quality. Could use more grommets.
This grommet tool works very well. The instructions are a series of drawings which leave a little to the imagination but it is easy to figure out. What I would like to see is the same kit sold with more grommets. It is a bit odd to sell such a nice tool with only 12 or so grommet sets to have a bit of a surplus for future use. You have to store the tool parts anyway so storing some extra grommets with it seems simple enough to do. Finding extra grommets for it can be a bit of a problem if they are not in stock locally and not available on-line.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TWayne Fixed my Tarp
Allowed me to fix my tarp that I use on my carport. The new grommets are holding up after 2 months. They have survived a few strong storms. Easily paid for itself in just one use.
