V.I.P. Inspection Port System

Back in 1991 - 1992 I purchased a system for installing inspection ports in insulation on aboverground storage tanks. The system uses a Greenlee hydraluic press to expand a metal grommet in the insulation and then a removable plug is inserted into the ring creating a permanent inspection port. When I bought the system the company I was working for at the time purchased several thousand metal grommets and plugs which have lasted me until today. Now I have no idea where to go to purchase more of these components or if the system is still available. Does anyone know anything about VIP?? I did some web searches and came up empty.

Re: V.I.P. Inspection Port System
Mike, check out this site. The system is much better, less expensive, and faster to install. I haven't seen any of those grommets in a long time. : Back in 1991 - 1992 I purchased a system for installing inspection ports in insulation on aboverground storage tanks.
