Rivets are permanent mechanical fasteners designed to hold two metal plates or other materials together. Upon installation, the headless end of the rivet is beaten out or pressed down to keep the fastener securely in place. Rivets are available in several styles and material options, including blind rivets, copper belt rivets, plastic snap rivets, and more.

Benefits of Riveting

Rivets provide several advantages that can make them an ideal fastening solution compared to other fastening methods. As permanent fasteners, rivets are less prone to failure due to vibration than other threaded fasteners. Rivets provide a solution for joining dissimilar materials together, including nonmetallic materials like plastics, wood, and more. Riveting is relatively inexpensive compared to other fastening methods, particularly for high-volume applications.

Types of Rivets

Rivets are available in a wide selection of styles and materials. If you have questions about which style of rivet is best for your application, do not hesitate to contact us for consultation. Common types of rivets include:
  • Blind Rivets: Blind rivets are tubular fasteners with a mandrel through the center, designed to be inserted into predrilled holes. These rivets utilize a specialized tool that draws the mandrel through the body of the rivet, creating a secure hold.
  • Drive Rivets: Drive rivets are a type of blind rivet with a drive pin designed to spread the end of the shaft. These rivets are often used in commercial sheet metal applications.
  • Nylon Rivet Snaps: Nylon Rivet Snaps are special rivets designed for light-duty fastening applications. Nylon rivet snaps are often used to join plastic sheets, fiberglass, and composition materials.
  • Solid Rivets: Standard solid rivets consist of a solid shaft with a head on one end. During installation, the headless end is deformed with a hammer or a rivet gun, securing the rivet to the fastened materials.

Common Applications for Riveting

Rivets and rivet nuts are used extensively in manufacturing and industrial applications. Rivets provide a low-profile solution for permanent fastening, making them ideal fasteners for applications that require a smooth finish. Rivets are popular fasteners in leatherwork, industrial manufacturing, sheet metal work, aircraft & aerospace, and more.
Our extensive selection of rivets makes it easy to find the perfect option for your application. From standard solid rivets and blind rivets to more specialized varieties like brake lining rivets and section rivets, we offer durable, high-quality rivets in all shapes and sizes.
