Putting grommets in a NACRA tramp

I want to put a metal grommet in the middle of my tramp, for shock cord. I don’t have time to remove the tramp and take it to a sail maker.

Can I heat up a metal rod red hot through the tramp to create the rights sized hole with a melted rim, and then put one of those grommets on from a grommet kit from Bunnings? Or is there an easier way to do it without stuffing my tramp?

I did this on my old stingray.First of all use a stainless steel grommet not copper,copper is to soft.You can put the grommet on before making a hole.You will need someone under the tramp with a hammer to push against the bottom grommet while someone hammers down on the top.Then you can either cut the centre out, or melt it out with a soldering iron.sting.
