If you don't know what your looking for grommets can be tough. I would suggest getting on the phone w/the vendor and explain your bowl/stem setup. Or you could try to fing a local vendor. good luck!

Hookah-Shisha central has good grommets. SOme are hard plastic, some are more flexible, and then there are Mya ones....which i don't reccomend.

I like the local shop idea, because that way you get EXACTLY what you need...OR if you can part with your hookah for about a week, see about sending it to one of the trusted vendors, to see if they can help you out and get the correct size

You can take your hookah stem and bowl(s) to a local hardware store, and try various grommets until you get a good match. Also, you should get some "friction tape", which is a flexible black plastic tape, that has no adhesive. You cut a small piece, to wrap around a grommet, and you get an airtight seal, with no "residue" caused by adhesive. Try it.

hookah-shisha.com has a good selection of grommets. for a bowl go with the phunnel. and make sure you get the smiley mod with it b/c its almost pointless without it. you can find the bowl and mod at hookahcompany.com for a great price

If you don't have any local shops around...

Just get a piece of a damp paper towel and wrap it around the top of the stem, kinda replacing the grommet. It will have a tight fit for the bowl. Hope it helps!
