Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job This is the best grommet fastener I have used. The punch is a joke. Had to buy a separate punch set from another dealer. April 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good product After reading about other grommet kits and downfalls, this one worked well and accomplished exactly what I needed for my project, without breaking the budget. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! June 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, simple Grommet Hardware While I can see how it would be tricky to keep all of the pieces together after the initial use, inserting grommets into a thick piece of fabric or through our tarp was actually very easy. I was worried it was going to be a daunting task, but it only took up about 45 minutes to add about 30 grommets. April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the money Good Value for the money, easy to use, compact storage requirement August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 10, 2014
