Rutgerson grommets are one of the most common brand of grommets used by sailmakers for reinforcing the reefing clew/tack cringles. If your sail doesn't have Rutgerson grommets, it is a relatively simple matter for a sailmaker to replace them. The loft I had install my third reef used them for the third reef and retrofit them for the other reefing points so that the blocks could be used on my sail.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
