Eyelets - small - 100/pack. Sail eyelets, nickel plated brass, 1.5 mm ID, 2.0 mm OD, 3.5 mm flange OD, 3.3 mm overall length, 3.0 mm under flange, 100/pack.

Use eyelet, ref 078-030, with one or more washers, ref. 079, and eyelet punch, ref. 090, to form attachments in the head, tack and luff of sails. Use items 080, 081 and 091 to form stronger attachments in the clew.

Before using the eyelets, washers and punch in a sail it is important to experiment on a sample of sail material with reinforcement that matches the sail to be worked on. If too great a length of eyelet protrudes from the cloth the rim of the eyelet will split and not form well when it is turned over by the punch. To remedy this add more reinforcement or washers until the eyelet is nicely formed. 

Item 078-030 is suitable for making attachments in heavily loaded areas of sails for 65 Class and smaller boats.

Available in bulk packs if required in larger quantities.

Also known as a thimble, cringle, grommet, bush. Formerly coded 078-030.
