Precision tools for a professional fit
▶ If you’re facing a task that would have traditionally been taken on by a craftsman of yesteryear with speciallysuited tools, there are two new specialist grommet and eyelet fitting tools now available from Laser. Whether it’s the 7881 kit priced at £201.17 or the more comprehensive 7882 kit at £316.99, struggling with press-studs, eyelets and popper connecters is a thing of the past.
The 7881 kit is aimed at commercial vehicle operators and includes the G-clamp style fitting tool (which can be screwed or clamped onto the bench, or even hand-held), with a 12mm and 16mm anvil and punch set. This gives you peace of mind for proper alignment of the mating components during press and crimping for a professional result every time. A 12mm and 16mm hole punch set is also included plus a selection of 12mm and 16mm grommets.
If that’s not enough, the 7882 kit features the same fitting tool but with plenty more in the way of anvils, punches and dies for fitting grommets, eyelets, press-studs and poppers. 10-hole punches are included from 2mm up to 16mm and four sizes of grommet/eyelet are supplied: 6.5, 9.5, 12 and 16mm. Press-studs and poppers are also included.
All these consumable items are available separately for both kits. Be sure to always check the website for the best prices and deals.
