This die set can be used with the C.S. Osborne W-1 Hand Press (sold separately) to install #0 brass or nickel spur grommets. Spur grommets feature metal spurs on the inside of the rim so they won’t easily pull out or spin in the fabric of your application, resulting in a longer lasting attachment.
Installing spur grommets with the W-1 Hand Press is quick and easy. First, install the cutting die in the top of the tool and use with the nylon cutting block that’s included with the tool to cut a hole in your fabric. Then install the two setting dies to set the grommet. Fit the male grommet piece onto the female die and the female grommet piece onto the male die. Then just press the handle until you feel a firm pressure and your grommet is set.
Please note: This set contains only the three #0 spur grommet dies. The W-1 Hand Press is sold separately.

How to Install Spur Grommets Using the W-1 Hand Press
I finally got to the point where the mallet wasn't the right answer and bought the press. Setting a few grommets is one thing, setting a whole bunch of them is another. Opting for the CS Osborne solution isn't inexpensive but doing it in stages makes it less painful. I'm slowly increasing the tools, starting with the press and the die sets I use the most and going from there...
Awesome product. Great for my business.
