Questions & Answers

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.

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
Yes, I would think so.

How many grommets in the package?

The specifications say 48, but it looks more like 5-10 sets from the pictures.

How thick can the fabric be for the grommet to go together.

How thick can the fabric be for the grommet to go together.

Anything under several millimeter should be just fine.

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.

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 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 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 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.
