This may seem like a radical idea, but has anyone heard of or tried drilling out one of the cross holes to better accommodate two strings through same hole? I could then tie off the cross string to itself. I am considering doing this so I don't have to remove cross's each time. What do you think, or any other ideas???
Don't under any circumstances drill it out. You can use a lubricated awl to open a grommet hole but I wouldn't do that either. When you restring replace all strings.

EDIT: Open the grommet hole up before you have a string in it so you don't break the string with the awl.
When you're dead you don't know you're dead. It's the same way when you're stupid.
