Metal grommets are commonly used as hole reinforcements in fabric, such as shower curtain holes, shoelace holes, drapery panel holes and tarps. Grommets are also use for design enhancements in jeans, belts, jackets etc.
Grommets are easy to install by using a grommet-setting tool, the tool is essentially a rod with a curved tip, and a hammer. Once installed, a grommet prevents the hole from tearing or ripping when fabric such as a shoelace when it is run through the hole or a curtain rod used for hanging a drapery panel.
Types of Grommets
There are different types of grommets for different applications. Popular kinds of grommets include plain grommets, decorative eyelet grommets, and drapery grommets.
Plain grommets can be made of several different metals and coats, including brass, antique brass, nickel plated, and black oxy. This type of grommet is well-suited to standard applications, such as tents, tarps, flags, banners, and curtains, and can fasten to a variety of fabrics, like cotton, canvas, nylon, etc. Paccana is also plastic grommets supplier.
Decorative eyelets are smaller grommets, appropriate for adding detail to clothing, such as jeans.
