The purpose of grommets is to add strength. By definition, they must be able to withstand high pressures and stresses! When you tie down a tarp, lace up a boot, or raise a flag, you rely on grommets to prevent the material from wearing and tearing.
No matter the material, it will eventually rip or fray if it is under constant tension or has laces or ropes running through non-reinforced holes.
If you’ve ever examined a quality pair of boots, corsets, or a tarp, you most likely noticed that the laces passed through small metal reinforcement rivets. These rivets, called grommets, prevent the material from fraying or tearing from tension and friction.
