Snap grommets are low cost and easy to place since they do not require any grommet press or tools. The two pieces of the grommet snap together tightly to grip the fabric securely in between but do not offer the strength of a pressed grommet.
Grommetworld.com offers the largest inventory of round grommets in the industry, but only carries one type of specialized grommet that closes without a press. The plastic grommets in the grommetworld.com supply are made from high quality UV stabilized polypropylene to resist color fading and cracking. These grommets are designed primarily with drapery and window treatments in mind.
The grommets do require some force to place together the pieces. The recommended method is to place a piece of wood over the grommet top with the bottom part braced on the floor or a hard surface. Tap the grommet in place with a small 4 pound hammer until it firmly snaps together. The fabric should be held securely for most window treatment related projects.
Grommetworld.com has the largest in house stock of round grommets in the industry. Delivery of any order is expedited due to the rapid availability of the grommets in stock. Back orders are very rare and usually involve special requests outside the standard sizes and finishes.
