Western Sporting's Custom-made Twist-type Grommet Setter
We contracted with a high-end machine shop to engineer these grommet setters especially for us. The grommets chosen for these setters are commonly available so there will never be a problem acquiring the correct type. They close the grommets easily, evenly and quickly. The grommet used for this twist-type setter also work in our vise-grip setters-two setter for you individual needs with one brand of grommets.
The setter is precisely engineered to work with these particular grommets.
The grommet setter comes bundled with a set of 25 free grommets but you can also purchase a gross (144) at a reasonable price. Be sure to order extra grommets if you have several hawks to get jessed-up. Add them here above in 144 when purchasing the setter or order separately below in 144's.

Hint: The Twist Type setter requires that the hawk be cast prior to its use. The process of attaching the anklets can be simplified so it is quicker and easier. After cutting the leather anklets, glue the male and female grommet pieces in place on the anklet with a small drop of contact cement. Also, put a small dab of contact cement on the inside of the leather anklets so they stay together when placed around the hawk's legs. Then, simply clamp the grommets and complete the process. Minimal fuss for you and less stress for your hawk!
