Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding tool I bought this tool having never put together a grommet. This tool works perfectly. It is simple and perfect. I put together about 28 grommets on a tarp I was fixing in less than an hour. Definately 5 stars. June 30, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use This was my first time installing grommets, and the tool was so easy to use. The grommets (for a theater curtain repair) looked good and were sturdy enough to hold up the heavy curtain. April 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and works great The only problem I had was that the flat side of the grommet is very thin and they tend to stick together. When I finished the box, I had one half of a grommet remaining. I had used 2 of the flat sides on one spot and ended up wasting a grommet. Count and separate the pieces before you start.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertized I used it on a banner to provide a place to tie banner to poles. It worked excellently to do the job. July 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Brass Grommet Kit Product was very easy to use and very accurate. Will use this tool again to add grommets to any of my tarps. July 21, 2013
