Eyelets - medium - 100/pack. Sail eyelets, nickel plated brass, 3.2 mm ID, 3.8 mm OD, 5.5 mm flange OD, 3.3 mm long, 100/pack.

Use eyelet, ref 080, with two washers, ref. 081, and eyelet punch, ref. 091, to form strong attachments in the head, tack and clew of sails for IOM and larger boats. Use items 078-030, 079 and 090 to form less heavily loaded attachments in the tack and luff.

The tamping tool, ref. 81-TOOL, can be used to press the washer, ref. 81, firmly onto the eyelet before using the punch to clench the eyelet.

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. 

Items 078, 079 and 090 are suitable for making attachments in heavily loaded areas of sails for smaller boats.

Available in bulk packs if required in larger quantities.

Also known as a thimble, cringle, grommet, bush.
