Answer: 
I know this answer is not getting posted. The question inquires about whether or not a specific item is in stock. HD sends me the question. Maybe I should fill out a job application. The answer to this question is that I DON"T HANDLE THESE, and I don't know if HD does or not. Maybe you could call and get put on hold.

Answer: 
Brass does not rust. If these rusted, then what you did wrong was to believe the packaging label. The copper in brass will oxidize or corrode in the presence of bleach. I suspect that this is what happened.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great for corsets! I purchased this grommet kit to install grommets for a corset I was making, and was very pleased with it. Easy and fun to use, and it ended up looking very nice. Why bother buying the same grommets from a corset supply store for three times the price when you can count on home depot to give you a product that is probably even sturdier? My only complaint is that there is only one color available, but these little babies probably take on spray paint. I will definitely buy more of these grommets for future corsets. If you want to purchase these grommets for tarps or whatever, I would definitely recommend them, because if they are strong enough to tightly lace a corset (and not pop off or bend), then they are strong enough for anything. March 15, 2010
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 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 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. December 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grommet Kit Worked well. The cutter didn't last too long but it did it's job. August 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Light Weight & Cheap Quality I guess Home Depot is not the place to buy a grommet kit to use for tarps. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Tool Ever I use these regularly to put grommets in fabric. I've tried other tools, but none would cut through my fabric. Since I use it so often, I have to buy them regularly... I only wish they didn't contain lead... December 3, 2013
