A general purpose rivet that can be used where the materials to be fastened does not require load bearings. Open-end blind rivets provide an economical means for fastening metal parts where easy disassembly is not required. The bodies of all our open-end blind rivets are fabricated by cold-heading, offering superior strength and excellent appearance.
Blind rivets provide a way to join parts together when you don't have access to both sides. They consist of a rivet (a hollow body with a head) and a mandrel (a thin nail with a bulb end). Rivets require a setting tool for installation. Riveted joints are strong, tight, and extremely reliable. How to install a blind rivet. Insert the rivet through a hole that passes through both materials being joined. Using a rivet tool with the same size nosepiece as the rivet diameter, grip the mandrel and pull the trigger or lever. The tool pulls the mandrel through the rivet, deforming the rivet's body and breaking off the excess mandrel.
Rivets can be used in numerous applications with low load bearing applications. Rivets are handy where access at the back of the work piece is restricted or not accessible.
Flange:Large flange rivets are particularly suitable for fastening softer materials (wood or plastic, for example) to metal.
