The CSTEP-1 is a portable, budget-minded grommet hand press for occasional use. As it happens, the ClipsShop CSTEP-1 grommet attacher is an economical and reliable manual press. Accordingly, for almost 2 decades, thousands of CSTEP-1 owners worldwide have benefitted from the simplicity of their user-friendly CSTEP-1 grommet attacher.
The CSTEP-1 is a MANUAL PRESS. As such, it is the hand pressure applied by the operator which sets a grommet. The force excerted by the press operator is critical to tightness of the attached grommets. Lastly, the consistency of the grommet application is as also dependent on the pressure applied by the operator.
For many, the entry-level CSTEP-1 was an upgrade from an old fashioned hand tool and hammer. Since then, many have upgraded again to the ClipsShop CSTEP-2 press. Regardless, it is recommended that the CSTEP-1 be used for smaller size grommets and periodic use.
CSTEP-1 Recommended Grommet Sizes:
#XX00 (1/8), #X00 (11/64), #00 (3/16), #0 (1/4), #1 (5/16), #2 (3/8), #3 (7/16)
While CSTEP-1 presses continue to be used for light-duty applications, the ClipsShop CSTEP-2 advanced hand press offers many superior features as compared to the CSTEP-1. Additionally, the CSTEP-2 is an excellent value for the money. The CSTEP-2 manual press offers many features including the following features:
- An ergonomic handle lever with a soft hand grip designed to increase comfort and reduce the hand force required for attaching grommets.
- A deeper throat which allows more flexibile placement of your metal grommets; as much as 4" in from the edge of your material to the center of the grommet.
- Compatible with the GrommetSniper™ alignment fixture and the EyeleD™ red positioning pointer
- Depth adjustment stop screw to reduce the chance of over-crimping on delicate or thick materials.
- Interchangeable self-piercing dies from the smallest #XX00 (1/8") up to size #5.5 (11/16") as well as #7.5 and #8.5 curtain eyelets.
Notes: The CSTEP-1 grommet machine requires a ClipsShop 2-piece self-piercing die set to attach the grommets. Additionallu, the die-set should match in size to the corresponding grommets. In other words, a #2 grommet with 3/8" hole size is attached with a #2 self-piercing die.
CSTEP-1 Dimensions (H x W x D): 12.4" x 3.7" x 9.4"
