This was exactly what I needed to install my own large grommets on my home-made deck curtains. Finding large metal grommets was not terribly easy and I am very glad the company I bought them from, Lushes Curtains, was so thorough on their descriptions for the grommets and stated that this tool would be needed. It saved me at least 3-4 days as I would have ordered the grommets then discovered I needed a tool at which time I would have tried to find one locally and probably failed and then would have ordered the tool from them anyway. This tool is machined for the exact size of grommet so it isn't something pretending to be something it isn't. The only other tool you need to install these grommets is a metal mallet (a hammer might work but a mallet is definitely the right tool for the job). I had never installed grommets before and I only 'messed up' (and they are still doing the job, they just don't quite look right if you really examine them) a couple of the 50 grommets I installed myself. The only other advice or tip I would share with anyone embarking on this adventure is that the hole puncher won't work on the thick Sunbrella fabric I used to make my curtains so I ended up cutting all the circles with scissors but I wouldn't say this is a 'problem' with the tool, just an exception in my case.Drapery Curtain Grommet #12 Hand Setter & Hole Punch/Press Complete Tool Kit 1-9/16 inch Die Cutter w/Acrylic Mat, Drape Eyelet InstallationDrapery Curtain Grommet #12 Hand Setter & Hole Punch/Press Complete Tool Kit 1-9/16 inch Die Cutter w/Acrylic Mat, Drape Eyelet Installation
