Grommets and Fasteners

Standard Stainless Steel Grommets

Standard stainless steel grommet fastenerMost of our tarps ship with standard stainless steel grommets. These have a hole size that is 7/16" and an outer diameter of 7/8". There is no extra charge for a reasonable number of grommets per tarp. We also offer larger sized brass grommets at no extra charge.

Larger Stainless Steel Grommets

These grommets should be requested if you need a larger hole size than our standard grommets. These have a hole size of 9/16" and an outer diameter of 1".


D-Ring fastenerD-Rings can be used instead of grommets at a cost of $2 per D-Ring. These are normally sewn such that they overhang the edge. They can also be set back if requested.

Marine Snaps

Marine snap fastenerSnaps can be installed at a cost of $1 per snap. Snaps can be problematic is colder climates since the snap base does not expand/contract at the same rate as the snap button. When installing snaps on your tarp, we will send you the snap base to screw into a wooden structure. We also have bases that consist of just a hole if you want to bolt this onto a metal frame or some other surface.

Common Sense Fasteners

Common Sense fastenerCommon Sense Fasteners can be installed at a cost of $4 per fastener. These allow for fast installation and removal of your tarp without the temperature sensitivity of snaps.

Weighted Hem

Tarp with 3/16 chain sewn into the hemSometimes tarps are needed where it is either inconvenient to use traditional fasteners or there is nothing to fasten the tarp to. In such cases we can sew a 3/16" chain into the hem of the tarp to keep it from blowing away. This is often done on pitching mound tarps where it would be dangerous to use spikes or other fasteners.
