b. Grip lifted washer edge with diagonal cutters and roll washer edge back to lift washer from
original grommet. Remove original grommet from material.
2. Install new grommet as follows:
a. Insert barrel of replacement grommet through accommodating hole in material and ensure
grommet flange is located on same side of material as original grommet.
b. Position grommet on die with barrel facing up and place washer over grommet barrel. Ensure
grommet barrel and washer are aligned to prevent off-center setting of grommet.
Using a punch and rawhide mallet or other non-steel Impact device, spread grommet barrel by
hammering until barrel collar is rolled down smooth on washer. If grommet barrel splits during
hammering, remove and replace installed grommet with a serviceable item from stock. Repeat
the procedure in steps (1) and (2), above.
