Will this work on 10 ounce Army Duck canvas? I don’t intend to subject the holes to any rough tr...

Asked by GGG March 23, 2021

Not sure of the thickness for 10 oz. Army Duck. I use these grommets to put additional holes in flags for mounting on motorcycles. The grommets go through two layers of canvas and the polyester flag material and hold well. The hole cutting tools dull quickly and are hard to sharpen. Instead of the hole tool, I: 1. mark the where the hole goes; 2. cut the fabric in an X; 3. push the bottom half of the grommet through; 4. pound them together. Works well on flags - pictures attached.

If the panel is a hard material like wood, the grommet will be about 1/16th thicker.

I have used grommets from plastics to cotton, just make sure that you use grommets on something that will no tare easily, and you will be happy with the results.

It's inside measurement.

Can I use this to install 1" grommets (inside diameter)?

No. None of grommets or the tools accommodate a grommet that large

the kit come with 1/2 to 3/8 grommets and all the tools you need to set each, it should work just well for what you want.

The set includes a "whole cutter" - is that better than a "half cutter?"

I have 1/4" grommets. Do you have a tool that I can use to set them? I need to replace one in a hat.

Answers

I have grommets kits for 1/4 to 11/2 in. this is in several kits so I am covered for any grommet I would. If you would need for different sizes of grommet I would get different sizes of kits they come in handy for many of home projects.

First time adding grommets to anything and it was so easy. I cut up a fence screen to make curtains for or screened in porch. The fence screen had grommets every 2 feet, unfortunately once cut in 8 foot sections, the grommets did fall where we needed them. This kit made it easy with the hole punch and attachment tool. I did use a 2 x 4 instead of the small piece of wood provided. Everything worked great. I may be adding more grommets to a few camping tarps now that I know how easy it is.

I’m on a quarantine driven garage organization spree, and this toolkit is just the ticket. Puches holes in everything I’ve thrown at it so far. I’ve done several pairs of work gloves so I can hang on pegboard, rubber boots and a flag. I will be needing more grommets soon!

After using this kit to install grommets on my outdoor table cover, I wonder why I went so long without this product. Installing grommets with it is fairly easy and just takes some hard swings of a hammer. No more over-stretching bungees or tarps flying around! The kit comes with everything you need to install 1/2" or 3/8" grommets. It includes 6 of each size. Installing is easy, you bunch out the hole with a hammer then hammer the male and female ends of the grommet together with the tools supplied in the kit. These grommets can also be used on tents, curtains, straps, etc. The comes in a case which is great except the grommets tend to end up in other compartments of the case. The wood block (a backing for hammering holes in the tarp) that comes with the kit is a nice hardwood but will wear out over time. I tried using a 2x4 scrap which worked but was generally too soft for the job and did not work too well. Hammering the cutout hole in the tarp I find is the hardest part, you need to hammer around the edges of the cutter to makes sure you get a good hole. When adding grommets, if possible, fold over the edge of the tarp for added strength. Grommets are made of rust-resistant brass. This grommet kit is made in India.

I used it for a limited time. The cutting punch wouldn't cut through a piece of polyester I was using for an awning. I had to cut the hole out with an exacto knife following the impression the punch left. Otherwise, it was okay.

This was my first attempt at making patio/deck curtains. It took me a few tries to get the hang of this kit. The tool cutter, didn't cut very well through canvas, so I used scissors to snip what I needed, going through the rest of the process. Once I got going with it, it was easy.

Worked perfectly for my application! Had a vinyl shower curtain In my travel trailer that kept tearing out of the hangers while traveling down the road. Placed a strip of Gorilla Tape across the top on both sides, proceeded to use the grommet kits hole cutter added the two part brass insert, then used the anvil bradding tools to form the perfect grommet to install hangers on shower curtain rod. Will not have a tearing issue any longer!
