  • Bulbex - Tribex - Trifold Blind Rivets
Click image to enlarge

Bulbex® trifold rivets are a style of blind rivets that are specially designed for structural and other high-strength applications. Also called Tribex® rivets, these tri fold rivets feature a slotted sheath; when installed, the sheath splits to create three “wings” that provide a large bearing surface. This unique design helps Bulbex® blind rivets resist pullout or cracking when installed in brittle and/or soft materials such as plastic.
 
Jay-Cee Sales & Rivet stocks Tribex® rivets in low profile and large flange head styles, with two body diameters and a variety of grip ranges available. These trifold provide tensile strength up to 1,070 lbs. and shear strength as high as 780 lbs.
