Grommets, often referred to as eyelets, are flared or collared rings designed to protect, fortify, and beautify pre-punched holes in thin substrates such as fabrics, composites, or metals. The grommet is inserted in holes and the washer is placed over the extended barrel from the back side of the material. A die setter is then hammered to the washer to bind the grommet to the washer together, creating a uniform ring. Grommets are available in various sizes and can be made of brass, aluminum, nickel, and stainless steel.
