I don't know where to buy the grommet, but this is the technique and perhaps everything came from the hardware store?

You can get the Slingerland aluminum grommets from chicago Drum Company Jim Moritz is a top notch guy, I think he has the tool as well.

Wait. Is this a late April Fools joke?

There is no need to slit the back of the grommet. If it it too long then cut it shorter but what that guy did is one of the dumber things I have seen.
