Thread: New Grommets
08-20-2010, 12:20 AM #18
Hi there guys. I have this problem. My Yonex AT900T shared grommets, specially at 5 o'clock and 7 o'clock positions (or maybe 4 and 8) are really stuck into their holes due to high tension. I have no grommet removal tool and it is not available in my country.
If any of you experienced this, how did you remove the shared grommets without using de-grommeting tool?

Good news is,u can DIY,modify the new normal double string(large) grommet.First,u need a scissor.Cut it to the normal length of the original grommet.Then,u need a screwdriver,that can slightly fit in the grommet hole..Screw it,n use a blunt surfaced,for ex:the bottom handle of the screwdriver itself n make it flat.I've done this on most of my grommets replaced rackets.

After u have it half way out,use ur nail cutter to clamp (don't cut them,otherwise u'll have a hard time to push them out) n pull the old grommets out.
Notice:U'll need a male nail cutter,not that mini nail cutter though..Otherwise u can't fit the space to clamp the big grommets.
Good luck on trying!

sorry for reviving this thread but I have some things to ask
I'm about to get grommets from mbs (just buying two types and shorten them if needed) and a lot of you have been talking about type A and C, but I was wondering which are the MBS equivalents because the types available there are B,C,E,F,I
looking at the diameters, I assumed it would be type C and I but I just want to make sure

On this subject, how tight should grommets be? I have the smallest ones from W&D (2.1mm iirc) and on yonex frames they are really hard to push in all the way, to the point that i sometimes have to shave a little bit off the grommet to get them to fit.
The last time i strung a YY frame i had to replace all of the single pass grommets, and after stringing they've pulled out a little, so that the flange isn't flush with the frame, so i'm going to have to restring and push them in more somehow.

in other words, they are the right fit if:
- it is not so loose that it falls out on its own, and
- you can push it into the grommet hole with bare hands (without hurting yourself)

Unless YY frames need smaller grommets than others, or this batch i have were made a little too big i'm at a loss.

I'm guessing that they are designed to squish down into themselves to make them more secure in the frame?

yeah. it looks like it.
but it does look like Yonex's grommet are less than 2.1mm.
i have noticed that with recent Yonex rackets with single pass grommets hole, it does take some effort to insert the MBS grommets into the hole. i will measure the size of the MBS grommets when i get home tonight.

i have two types of grommet that i got from MBS.
they measure 2.55mm and 2.09mm
