Solid Steel Rivets

Steel fasteners are hardware devices that are used to mechanically join objects together. Solid steel rivets are a sturdy, effective, and permanent fastener option for a broad range of applications. They are relatively simple devices, comprised of a shaft and with a head (in one of a number of specific styles—see below) at one end. Like all steel fasteners, steel rivets provide a good combination of strength and durability, and are a more economical choice than those manufactured from most other metals or alloys.

How to Install Solid Steel Rivets

To install a steel rivet, the fastener is first inserted through matched drilled or pierced holes in two (or more) workpieces. Then, the headless end is struck with a hammer or a special riveting tool, which deforms the end of the shaft and creates (essentially) a second head. With both ends of the rivet now larger than the drilled/pierced holes, the rivet forms a reliable, permanent joint. Once installed, steel rivets can only be removed using tools which destroy the fastener.

Standard Tolerances for Steel Solid Rivets

Diameter of Shank

Nominal Diameter Minus Plus
0.052-.094 0.001 0.003
0.095-0.156 0.001 0.004
0.157-0.219 0.002 0.005
0.220-0.375 0.003 0.006

Length of Shank

  • Diameters of 3/4” up to 4” long, inclusive
  • ±1/64” diameters to 3/4” lengths over 4”
  • ±1/32” diameters over 3/4” to 4” long ±1/32”
  • Diameters over 3/4” in lengths over 4” ±1/16”

Diameter of Head

As the heads of our solid steel rivets have not been machined or trimmed, the circumference may be irregular, and edges may be rounded or flat.

The diameter of the rivet head shall be within -8° and +4° of the nominal head diameter.

Height of Head

+8°/-4° of the nominal or basic head height, but in no case less than ±0.005”.

Out-of-Roundness of Head & Eccentricity of Head in Relation to Shank (In Inches)

Nominal head diameter Total dial indicator reading resulting from eccentricity and out-of-roundness not to exceed
Up to 1/4” 0.015
Over 1/4” to 3/8” 0.020
