Cleco Fasteners - Temporary Rivets

Originally developed by the Cleveland Pneumatic Tool Company, temporary cleco fasteners are a fast and easy method of holding sheets together for drilling and permanent riveting. A type of blind fastener, cleco rivets can be used in assemblies where the installer does not have access to the opposite side of the workpiece.
Jay-Cee Sales & Rivet offers a large, in-stock selection of cleco fasteners, with a range of sizes and styles available. Follow the links below to find cleco temporary rivets for your application, request a quote, or contact us for more information.

Cleco Temporary Rivets for All Applications


Cleco fasteners (sometimes spelled “cleko”) are installed in pre-drilled holes to hold materials in place; those same holes are usually used to install the permanent rivet later, with the cleco rivet being removed prior to permanent rivet installation. Cleco fasteners expand on the opposite sides of the workpieces, then draw and clamp them together. They help maintain the proper alignment for permanent rivet installation, and prevent distortion.
Jay-Cee Sales & Rivet offers cleco fasteners in all “standard” sizes, with grip range for material thicknesses from 0” to 1/2”. Cleco rivets are color coded for easy identification—each size is a different color. These temporary fasteners require sheet holder pliers for proper installation.
If you can’t find the right cleco fasteners for your needs, or if you’re not sure which model is best suited to your application, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will help you find the cleco temporary fastener you’re looking for.
