  • Drive Rivets

A drive rivet is a type of blind rivet with a short mandrel that protrudes from the head. Once the drive rivet is inserted into a hole, the mandrel is driven in with a hammer or other implement to flare out the end of the rivet that is inside the hole. Because they do not require holes to be drilled all the way through the material, drive rivets are popular for architecture and other aesthetically-minded applications.

Jay-Cee Sales & Rivet offers affordable, high quality Southco drive rivets in aluminum and steel, with a variety of sizes and configurations available. Follow the links below to find drive rivets for your application, request a quote, or contact us for more information.

Southco Drive Rivets for All Applications



Southco drive rivets provide high-strength “permanent” bonding in through-hold and blind-hole applications for diverse materials such as metal, wood, and masonry. These drive rivets are easy to install and remove, making them ideal for field work, with a very economical total installed cost.

Drive rivets can be used in nearly any material—wood, metal, plastic, etc.—and, other than a hammer, require no special tooling for installation; a backing block may be needed in some cases, depending on the material and application. It should be noted that, in general, drive rivets provide less clamping force than most other rivet styles.
We offer aluminum drive rivets in four styles: brazier head, countersunk, liner head, and universal. Steel drive rivets are available in countersunk head and universal head styles.
If you can’t find the right drive rivets for your unique application in our inventory, or if you’re unsure which option is right for your needs, feel free to contact us. We’ll help you find the drive rivets your application requires.
