Raft Grommet Replacement

So I a few of the floor grommets on my Hyside came loose this season.

Anyone know where to get replacements? I imagine un-lacing and re-lacing the floor will be a real pain in the ass. Any suggestions on that?

it takes specialized tools to replace them they're low tech but ...ya gotta have 'em it would probably be alot cheaper to have someone do it for the springs i don't know who that would be but i do know you could take it to erik @ IRR in swissvale which is just a little east of salida and yes lacing those floors is kind of a pain but erik has only done about a million of them. his number is 719-539-9751

if you unlace your floor i could regrommett for you for a few bucks a grommett. the grommett tooling is expensive so if you have to buy you wont save any dough. lacing in a floor incurs a one hour charge for single pass and 1.5 for double, plus new webbing. doing it yourself the first time will take at least 3 times that and you are bound to end up annoyed and with a bunch of twists if you are not real careful. not the biggest deal but i think it wears out faster if it is all twisted up. certainly something you could do yourself if you have the time and patience. not sure what erik charges but he is a fine choice as well.
