Looking for a special grommet
Hi everyone. Hope someone can help me. I have a small home business. I am looking to make a lovely little vinyl tote I’ve seen advertised. I need a rectangular or “C-shaped” on both ends grommet, preferrably in goldtone metal. It would need to be about 1 inch in length and is very slim in the opening, just enough to let a 3/4 inch belt pass through. I’ve searched all over the web and cannot find anything like this. Surely, some sewing accessories house would have something like it, but I cannot find one. Please help! Thanks to all.
Here are some grommets

Oh! Thank you!! The very first site you mention was a winner, Diday!. Rome Fastener Corporation seems to have the very thing. I will e-mail or fax them shortly and get their prices. So happy to find this site. They seem to have everything I need. Thank you, once again! When I finish a tote, I'll send in a photo for all to see. What good help we get in the sewing world!
That first site was very interesting. I looked to see if they had a tool for setting grommets but didn't see one. I've been watching for something that does a better job than the things you get at JoAnn's, etc. I don't use them often enough to justify industrial quality, (and expense.)
You should be able to find something here, or in your local hardware or art supply store.
