I see this is a brass grommet kit. Will this kit work with and hold up well using steel grommets which are cheaper to purchase?

Will these grommets rust if used for a pool cover?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.

I didn't want to spend several hundred on a super-sturdy tarp for a trailer so bought a recycled one without grommets, and this kit. Unfortunately, this kit is not designed for super-sturdy vinyl material. After one attempt I gave up the idea as it proved impossible to make decent holes with the hole-cutting die. It would be helpful if the kit description included the weight/type of material it is suitable for. Also, we suspected that the cutting die would become blunted by repeated use.

This unit performed properly and left my eyelets perfectly and professionally shaped. The combination 3/8 and 1/2 inch kit available in store did not, the length and shape of the punch made all the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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.
