Grommets Shower Curtain –
Shower curtain grommets are 2-piece metal rings that, when put around the holes in your shower curtain, reinforce them, reducing strain, rips and tears. Grommets aid your curtain last by way of daily use and removal for washing. Here’s how to install these grommets quickly and effortlessly on a vinyl curtain or a plastic curtain.
Step 1 – Supplies and Tools
You will need to have at least 12 grommets for a standard shower curtain, scissors, a grommet disk, a washer setting tool and a rubber mallet. Get the grommet disk and setting tool in a kit when you purchase the grommets.
Step 2 – Choose the Appropriate Size Grommets
The standard shower curtain’s best holes are .5-inches in diameter. Purchase grommets slightly bigger than this size. You can enlarge the curtain holes by snipping a modest reduce with scissors away from the best edge of the curtain.
Step 3 – Prepare Your Workspace
Work in a large clear space like a countertop or table, that will not dent or crack below stress. Check all grommets you want to use. You want to have a large grommet that will have a rounded leading, and a flat washer disk for each grommet you want to attach. Be certain all pieces are in suitable condition and that all the grommet teeth are pointing outward from the center. Have the grommet disk, washer setting tool, and rubber mallet ready to use.
Step four – Insert the Initial Grommet
This component of the grommet has small teeth on it to grasp the edge of the hole. Lay it on the grommet disk so the grommet fits into the disk groove at the best. Snip the shower curtain hole to match the grommet just a tiny reduce should do. Never make the reduce as well large or the grommet will fall out. Spot your shower curtain hole on the grommet and push the grommet through the hole, so all the grommet teeth come via and overlap the edge of the hole.
Step five – Add the Grommet Washer
The washer is the thin flat metal circle that closes and secures the grommet. Spot the washer on the grommet so it presses down on all the teeth. Push the washer into the curved outer edge of the grommet with the washer setting tool, guaranteeing that it is completely embedded.
Step six – Tap the Grommet and Washer With the Rubber Mallet
Lift the grommet from the grommet disk. Hold the curtain down firmly about the grommet with 1 hand. Tap the washer side challenging twice with the mallet. Verify that the washer and grommet are snugly joined. Keep your fingers out of the way of the mallet head when striking the grommet assembly. Swing smoothly, holding the mallet half-way up the handle. Install the remaining grommets.
Step 8 – Hang the Shower Curtain
Slip the open shower curtain hooks over the shower rod. Place the hook stems via the grommets and fasten the hooks closed.
