Okay, I admit that Im a tool nerd but this is pretty cool. Its not cheap for the number of times that youll use it but it did a great job of stretching the grommets so that I could drop plug wires through them. I hate the idea of cutting the grommets for installation. It also works great as a grip strength trainer!
So far mine has been great. I’ve only used it a few times but it’s really nice when I need it. I like this better than cutting the grommet.
Ours didnt last at all. I decided not to request a replacement because the tool itself is cheaply made, so replacing it is a moot point.
Very cheap tool made out of cast pot metal I used it three times before it broke . I would not recommend buying this tool. Great idea , poor quality
