Split rivets, also known as bifurcated rivets, are a type of self-piercing rivet that are most often used to join softer materials such as textiles, leather, plastic, or wood. As the name suggests, these rivets are pre-split along the length of their shaft, forming two “legs”; when installed, a split rivet’s legs fold back to hold the joined materials together.
 
Common uses for split rivets include the production of leather goods, clothing, cloth or soft-sided carrying cases, and similar applications. Bifurcated rivets usually require special tools for installation
