I have a wide brim golf hat that is slightly too big. I'd like to put small grommets in the brim close to the crown, and add a rawhide string to keep the hat attached in windy conditions. Would this tool do the job?
Asked by: JimP
Tandy Leather stores will likely have grommets more suitable for your application. The store staff per my experience are knowledgeable.

can hd install grommets on a vinyl banner for me

Asked by: Phyllis
If I worked there, I would sure do it for you. Sadly, this is a project that will take way more time than they are willing to give you. The installation is really quite simple. One lays the area of the grommet receiving item that needs a hole, on the hard wooden block, positions the cutter on it, and WHACK goes the weasel, er, I mean hammer. I remember having a few trepidations about doing it the first time. But, I found that it was easy...and shall I say fun? Nah. But there was a satisfaction that accompanied the successful completion. I am hoping that hd means Home Depot. The only other hd that comes to mind doesn't sell grommets and charges way to much for their stuff. Home Depot has consumer friendly prices.

Is this suitable for putting grommets through a waterproof picnic blanket? The blanket itself is fairly thick (quilted top, cotton middle layer, tarp bottom); the waterproof-tarp backing results in the blanket slipping around on the ground. I'd like to add grommets to the blanket so we can stake it into the ground.
Asked by: STLSewingLady
i would suggest cutting the holes by hand with scissors, and using this tool to install the grommets. I know I could make it work. If you are handy and creative, it should work for you.

1/2 in. Solid-Brass Grommet Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

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.

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