Eyelets are an excellent way to attach pieces of material together or reinforce a hole used to thread string or rope. Although eyelets are fairly easy to install, the task requires special tools that ensure they are in place securely. Buying an eyelet kit is a great way to acquire the supplies necessary to install them.
