Personally I use hot rabbit skin glue, mixed quite thick. I put some glue on the samper/damper, push the button, move the pad into position, then release the button and let the spring hold the grommet down while the glue dries.

Thanks Alex. Is that a flexible glue or does it set hard?  

 

It's slightly flexible, but in this application the compliance in the joint mainly comes from the soft leather the samper is made from.

as pads, their dots (sempers) and the leather end of arm beads (grommets) are all throw away items ,I use what Steve Dickinson advised me, white PVA glue

Thanks Dave. I have all ready bought Alex's suggestion of rabbitskin glue. The grommets are in not bad condition considering their age, so I will be leaving them in situ. Regards Baz.
