Grommet Tool Kits
TARP GROMMET TOOL KITS
When using a tarp, it can be easy to underestimate just how important those little holes along the edges are until you need to cover a load on the back of your truck, make a canopy for protection from the elements, or link tarps together to cover your leaky roof. No matter how you use your tarp, those holes, more appropriately called grommets or eyelets, can mean the difference between your load arriving safely at its destination or being scattered along the freeway as your tarp flaps away in the wind. Grommet kits can be used to repair tarps with missing pieces or simply make them more useful by adding eyelets where needed.
Replacing or installing a tarp grommet is an easy, quick do-it-yourself project. You will not only need the brass grommets and washers, but you will need a hole cutter and a setting die as well. This equipment comes in different sizes, so you can choose what will work best according to the size, material, and intended use of your tarp. Whether you are replacing a torn-out piece or are customizing a tarp to fit your unique needs, a grommet kit or the professional grade grommet tools are a solid investment that can be used time and again. If you don’t need the whole kit, however, the grommet tools, hole cutters, and setting dies can be purchased separately.
