Sinclair Equipment Co. introduced 1/2-inch inner-hole diameter, transparent plastic grommets that provide a smooth finish to the construction of boat covers and other fabric-related products. The eyelet and washer combine with a compressed fit to establish a solid grab of the material, reducing hole elongation caused by metal eyelets.
Sinclair’s J-31 Pneumatic Grommet Machine on Wheels is a lightweight, portable machine that requires a small air compressor to run. Unique to this setting machine is the hole punch. Before the eyelet and washer are set, a hole is cleanly punched in the material, which prevents the tearing and shearing of material, commonly found with self-piercing eyelets.
