For grommet tool selection, you will need both a setting die and a hole cutter, which appears on this page, for each size grommet.

Grommet Hole Cutters.

for Plain Grommets and Spur Grommets.

The picture is of a grommet tool. In particular a grommet hole cutter. These cutters
 will penetrate multiple layers of fabric. Also known as a cutting punch.

Used with a Mallet and Cutting Pad to make holes for Grommets.

It's easy! Determine where you want the center of the grommet. Mark the cloth with a pencil or pen. Place the cloth on one of our cutting pads. Center the hole punch on the mark and pound with a mallet. This makes the hole in the cloth. Use on a firm surface that won't be damaged by misplaced hammering. These cutters easily cut your fabric to the exact size hole you need for your grommets. These are durable professional grade tools that will last for years. These cutters will penetrate multiple layers of fabric. Also known as a cutting punch. These tools are used in conjunction with setting dies to install grommets. Except when a self piercing grommet (bench mounted presses only) is used, a Hole Cutter is absolutely necessary for installation. These cutters are made from drop forged steel, with a hardened and polished edge. Inside tapered for easy clearence. Also see:
