Spur grommets are not as strong as sewn rings, but they are much more quickly installed. Do not confuse these grommets with the common washer grommets that are sold in hardware stores everywhere. Spur grommets are of heavier metal with spurs all around the inside rim of the washer that lock into a rolled edge on the barrel part of the grommet. As a result, they will not easily pull out of the fabric.
For the best results, we recommend using a #2 hole cutter for the #1 Spur Grommet
Please Note: Spur grommets cannot be installed with common washer grommet tools. Use a #1 die with a #1 spur grommet.

Sailrite friends, I recently ordered 5/16 spur grommets and received 3/8 grommets in bags labeled 5/16. I can use those 3/8 but am sending in an order for the 5/16 again, (in addition to some 1/4) In general you folks have always done me right. Thanks Michael Kohout
Spur Grommets have a number stamped on them, in this case #1, to identify the size. There are before and after size expectations in the specs on our website that might also be helpful. I'm glad to know you're able to use these, but if you find that these have #1 stamped on them, you will be getting the same size with your new order. If we can be of further assistance, please call us at 260-244-4647 or email us at email@example.com.
Good quality at a reasonable price plus all the DIY info for every project...
This spring I switched out my roller furler (it was 25 years old) and elected to add hanks to my foresail instead. A local sail shop was willing to do it but at a cost and considerable delay. Preferring the DIY route by nature I began looking around for options. Note - other sailors advised against DIY for various reasons. Before making a final decision, I called Sailrite and spoke to the resident sailmaker. He was so helpful - most productive 10 minutes of the spring sailboat prep process. Based on his recommendations I ordered hanks and grommets and the die set spur and hole cutter from Sailrite. Job took about an hour and saved me well over $125 vs quote from sail loft. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate my experience somewhere in the 20's. Sailrite is a first class company. I highly recommend them. They will be my first call on all future projects. Also, the how to videos are excellent!
