New specialist grommet and eyelet fitting tools from Laser

Laser Tools has released these two new specialist grommet and eyelet fitting tools (part numbers 7881 and 7882).

The 7881 kit is aimed at commercial vehicle operators and includes the G-clamp style fitting tool (which can be screwed or clamped onto the bench, or even hand-held), with a 12mm and 16mm anvil and punch set.

The tool ensures proper alignment of the mating components during the press and crimp process. A 12mm and 16mm hole punch set is also included plus a selection of 12mm and 16mm grommets. Intended for tarpaulin covers and HGV side curtains.

The 7822 kit includes the same fitting tool but with a more comprehensive range of anvils, punches and dies that can be used for fitting grommets, eyelets, press-studs and poppers.

Ten hole punches are included from 2mm up to 16mm and four sizes of grommet/eyelet are supplied: 6.5, 9.5, 12 and 16mm. Press-studs and poppers are also included. All these consumable items are available separately for both kits.
