A Countersunk Pop Rivet is also sometimes called a Flat Rivet or Flush Pop Rivet, alongside other names. With CSK Rivets you will see a neat finish that sits flush with correct installation (please note that the surface of the top material being fastened needs to be countersunk prior to the insertion of the rivet to achieve this finish). Our Countersunk Pop Rivets come in a choice of steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
Blind Rivets are so-called because they can be used to fasten two items together without the operator needing to have access to the rear surface (the blind side) of the items being joined.
The rivet has a stem called a mandrel. The mandrel is inserted into a rivet gun and the protruding body of the rivet is then pushed into the hole and through the materials that are being fastened. The mandrel is then pulled back, forcing the sides of the rivet to expand outwards. When the rivet can expand no further the mandrel snaps off, leaving a neat and tidy finish on both surfaces.
