A Short Bit About me

I'm Spencer King, an ex-marquee erector. This blog is designed to help those running a hire business or thinking of starting. I don't claim to know everything, I'm just trying to help people avoid the mistakes I made! Check out our event planning section for advice on planning your own marquee event.

DIY Detachable eyelets

I really try to keep this blog informative rather than a sales pitch for our shiny & lovely DIY Marquees.

Today I’m going to write about an ingenious gadget that we’re starting to sell but please realise that I love this thing which is why we’re now selling them – I’m not raving about something just because we sell it. Make sense? Probably not but regular readers will be used to that 😉

Introducing the DIY detachable eyelet:

DIY detachable eyelet

dimensions approx 8cmx4cm
This is a tool that means you can create an eyelet anywhere on a marquee wall/roof without leaving marks or making holes.

How’s that useful?

Our marquee walls used to be covered in very small holes where we’d have to attach them to a house -you get quite inventive how you do it but generally cable tying to a drainpipe or door frame is the most common. This tool saves any hole-making or damaging, just create an eyelet in seconds.

I promise you if these had been around when we ran a hire company I’d have bought them by the hundred, they save so much time and effort while looking smarter. They’re also good for emergency repairs or guttering.
They’re not on the website yet as we’re rushed off our feet (I nearly said snowed under there..) but costs will be:

  • £3.80 for 4 (p&p £1.20)
  • £7.80 for 10 (p&p £1.50)
  • £14.80 for 20 (p&p £1.80)
  • £29.80 for 40 (p&p £3.95)

We only stock white as all commercial marquees are white.

Thanks for reading, hope it’s not too marquee sales pitch like
