Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Decent tool which does a fair job on thin materials
The tool does not go into the base portion sufficiently to set grommets tightly in thin materials. On heavy material like canvas it is satisfactory.

This is the best grommet fastener I have used. The punch is a joke. Had to buy a separate punch set from another dealer.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Calikrispy Great item to make cheap canvas tarps at home
Works great with one exception. The round tube for cutting the hole in the fabric almost doesn't work at all. It works somewhat and I just used my fingers to finish holes in canvas. I may just try using a screwdriver for hole next time. The grommet kit itself was so easy my teenager used it quite a bit and it worked very well. The grommets have held in canvas for a few months with some serious wind in Arizona lately so I am quite impressed with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MamaV Perfect!
When turning our old dining room into a music studio, I needed a cheap acoustical barrier to dampen the sound coming from the living room (all hard wood and very live). I purchased a stack of black moving blankets to use while teaching or recording, but I only wanted to hang them as needed. (Who wants moving blankets as permanent wall decor in a living room??) I struggled to come up with a way to hang them on a temporary basis. Finally, my husband suggested grommets. I used this kit (3/8") to make neat and durable holes in the blankets so that I could lift them on and off of discreet wall hooks when needed. The hole puncher easily cut through 2 or 3 blankets at a time, and the grommets neatly attached the blankets 3-thick to hang over the doorways. So simple! So effective! And so cheap!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grommetman Good Grommeting
I used the General 3/8" Grommet Kit to install grommets on large artists canvas and it worked perfectly to punch the holes and set the grommets. The kit includes brass grommets, better than some other brands which are not brass. I used a 1 lb sledge hammer with a light touch, instead of the light ball and peen hammer suggested.

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.
