I get mine at Ace hardware. I buy them about 8 to 12 at a time. I cant remember what size it is exactly, but there is one that fits the standoffs on virtually every helicopter.

Here is a picture of the Ace Hardware grommets on a canopy.

I recently got the quick uk magnetic canopy studs. I love them vs a grommet. I hope they got some goblin sized ones soon.

McMasterCarr and really any good hardware store is going to have grommets. I still prefer the softness of the white heli specific ones that Thunder Tiger markets.

It's going to vary depending upon which heli and therefore which size you need. McmasterCarr.com is where you start. Surely you can spend a few minutes and choose your own grommet?

Well I went to Ace hardware today and they did not have any rubber grommets that would be the size or close to the size I need.

Align:

600 Canopy nut 2.7x11x4.6mm

700 Canopy nut 2.7x7x11x2.5mm

I cannot locate Metric sized rubber grommets.

Does anyone have any leads or suggestions?

I wonder why they dont sell these in bulk

Like 25 or 50 to the box?

Thunder Tiger makes a good canopy grommet and could sell bunches that way.

Thunder Tiger grommets are very soft and tear in no time. I like them too but I wish they were a little stronger.

Don't buy bulk....Buy one set that lasts for life.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Here are the dimensions for the Align Grommets:

600 Canopy Nut (Ö2.7xÖ11x4.6mm)

700 Canopy nut (Ö2.7xÖ7xÖ11x2.5mm)

Can't find them here in the US in Metric.
Can anyone locate them in the UK or Asia areas?

If we can locate a supplier we could get them in bulk like 25 or 50 to the box. Yes to I too agree with the previous post the Align Canopy grommet seem to last longer than the Thunder Tiger. The Raptor version which is part number #PV0062, This part number fits the 30,50,60 and 90 size Helis and also work on the Aligns.
