You need to let buyers know that this product gets better with use. The first and or second time, it may smash the grommet instead of rolling it. Once the black finish is polished off by the initial couple of practice grommets, it rolls the grommet correctly. The more I used it, the better the results of the rolling. Also you need to watch the video, the first 3 taps are lighter, the last couple of whacks are heavier, the last one the heaviest.

OK, I thought the track tape, (the tape used to sew to curtains to attach them to tracks attached to the inside hull) was really poor quality. The tabs are not a consistent distance apart, they aren't even a consistent direction. In order to get 2 tracks with plastic tabs consistently in line (upper and lower tracks), I ended up having to cut the tape apart and sew the plastic tabs individually. Luckily, sailboat curtains aren't looked at too closely, otherwise it would have been a complete rework.

Unfortunately, the die set did not work as shown in the video. The #2 size supposedly was correct to go with the 3/8" grommets we purchased as a set, but the grommets stuck fast to the die set plug and only could be released by using pliers which tore the canvas and unhooked the grommets. We tried it multiple times with no success, watching the video again and again to confirm we were doing as instructed. The die set was just too small, it appears. And we DID use a mallet hammer not a regular hammer.
Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
