  Supplying the World with Quality Grommets and Grommeting Equipment
HIKER will beat any major competitors' price on self-piercing grommets!
Grommets & Eyelets
HIKER offers a wide range of standard grommets from small eyelets for shoe laces to large grommets for stage curtains.  HIKER also specializes in self-piercing grommets which cut their own holes. HIKER's self-piercing grommets are manufactured in an ISO 9002 certified environment with only the highest quality raw materials.  No other company in North America has as more sizes and types of self-piercing grommets than HIKER. 

Self-Piercing Grommets
Self-piercing grommets eliminate extra steps and save time, which saves you money!  How?  The tips of the barrels on each grommet are sharper and the material is more rigid, which allows the grommets to cut their own perfect sized holes every time.  This eliminates the need to 'pre-cut' holes, saves labor hours and provides the framework for a quality grommet setting with every insertion.  Having the grommets cut their own holes also eliminates the extra cost of purchasing and maintaining a separate hole-punch and allows significant savings ($1,600 - $3,000 on average), on electric presses.  The benefits of self-piercing grommets at HIKER's industry-low prices will make a positive impact on your company's bottom line.


The following are some of HIKER's more popular items.  Many more are available and HIKER can even make custom grommets.  In addition to the normally stocked finishes listed below, HIKER typically has other finishes from time to time and can arrange just about any finish required.

What are Grommets  used in?  
Q:  What's the difference between a grommet and an eyelet?

A:  Not much.  Grommets are eyelets.  However, the term grommet is usually used to refer to larger eyelets or eyelets with larger flanges.
Notes:

ID = Inside Diameter
OD = Outside Diameter
LUF = Length Under Flange

All given dimensions are approximate.

Grommet dimensions vary between manufacturers for various reasons, such as proprietary designs, different manufacturing techniques, etc. 

In general, the more common 'size' names
in the market (i.e. #0, 1,
2, 3, 4, 5), refer only to
an approximate inside diameter.  

Not all suppliers follow 
the same size name to dimension, so always check inside diameter.
For example, another common supplier calls their 5/8" id grommet a 
#4 when all others in the
market refer to a 5/8" id grommet as a #5.

HIKER has a series of eyelets that vary in outside barrel diameter and Length Under Flange LUF by increments of 1/32".  For example, the HS-60 series eyelets are available in an HS-66 version.  This means that the eyelet has an outside barrel diameter of 6/32" and a barrel length under flange of 6/32", hence the HS-"66" designation.  An eyelet with a barrel OD of 8/32" and an LUF of 10/32" would be an HS-810.  Please inquire for available sizes and finishes.
Standard Grommets & Eyelets
Standard grommets are similar to self-piercing grommets in size dimensions and finishes, but are typically made of a lighter guage metal, which requires the holes to pre-punched in the material before the grommet is set.  Standard grommets can be more economical for those who only use a few grommets occasionally since they will likely use a hand punch and hammer to cut the holes, or for large volume users that use several thousand per day since they will likely use an electric 'auto-punch' grommeting machine, such as our H-2008.  For all users in between, self-piercing grommets are usually more cost effective.  HIKER offers standard grommets, which are similar to the self-piercing sizes above and eyelets for various uses as listed below.  HIKER stocks many more sizes, styles and finishes than are listed on this website, so please call if you have a need for something not found here.
