This style should not be confused with the Countersunk Head Rivet Nuts which have a visible 90 degree countersunk and require a pre-drilled countersunk hole to enable them to fit flush; Reduced Countersunk or Countersunk Thin Sheet Heads only have a slight countersink. Additionally, please note that this closed end version has a sealed end to prevent ingress into a component by either the screw or moisture.
Blind Rivet Nuts are used to create an internal thread in a thin or awkward shaped material. As they are “blind” you only need access to the front of the material, making them ideal for use within box sections, tubes and thin sheet materials.
To use a Blind Rivet Nut you need a special setting tool, which we stock. The Rivet Nut is inserted into a pre-drilled hole and the setting tool is screwed into the internal thread in the rivet hole. The force exerted by tightening compresses the body of the rivet nut, which then collapses outward and squeezes tightly against the back of the material. The setting tool is then unscrewed leaving the Rivet Nut fixed in position.
