Compression/ Speedy / Rapid Rivets

A compression rivet, also known as a speedy rivet or rapid rivet, is most often utilized in clothing, luggage, hand bags, and textile applications. Compression rivets can be used to join or fasten leather, nylon webbing, denim, and countless other sturdy materials.

Rapid rivets come in two pieces—a stem and a cap—and are easy to install. First, punch/cut/drill a hole in each part; then, push the cap through the hole and insert the stem; place the rivet on a firm surface; finally, hit the rivet lightly with a hammer or use a rivet press tool. The impact/pressure will compress the cap and stem (hence, “compression rivet”) to securely the material.
