Default Need help inserting the brass eyelet inside the rubber grommet for my servos

Has anyone else had issues trying to install the brass eyelet inside the rubber grommet on the servos? When trying to install the brass eyelets (from the bottom side going up) they push through, but at the very top they get stuck and don't make it all the way or close to the top of the rubber grommet so that they are showing. Instead the rubber piece gets in the way and is pushed up a bit. Is there a trick to pushing the brass eyelets through? Thanks.

Put the eyelet on a hex wrench or any type of screwdriver that has small enough shaft for the eyelet to slip over.Just push it in the grommet. It is super easy!

err... push harder?

(and spray the hole with WD40 or drop a droplet of shock oil in there)

They go through midway, and then get stuck before making it to the top. It gets caught on the inner rubber part.

lol...i pushed so hard that my fingers were sore as can be and still feeling the repercussions this morning. ha. I will try the shock oil trick, maybe that will help.

Put the grommet on the servo first then use a pair of pliers to press the brass piece in place, ... takes a little practice but after a while it becomes easy.

The brass needs to go in from the top (side where you would put the screw)

I am hearing you Integra my man but my servo's are 3+yrs old and still going strong, I had them rubber mounted for a few months but then ditched the rubber.

But then again I dont run hitecs!!!
