Blind Rivet Nuts - Tools

About our Rivet Nut Tools

To use any style of Blind Rivet Nut you need a special setting tool (called a Nutsert or rivet nut gun). The rivet nut (or Rivnut) 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.

About our Riveting Tools

We keep 2 types of hand riveters for setting Blind Rivets:

• Standard Riveter uses a squeeze grip action. It has 4 different head sizes to take rivet sizes 2.4mm,3.2mm,4mm and 4.8mm and includes 30 assorted rivets and a spanner to change the head size.
• Our Lazy Tong Riveter uses a concertina type action to do up rivets up to a diameter of 6.4mm.

 

How to use Blind Rivet Nuts:

Blind Rivet Nuts are used to create an internal thread in thin or awkwardly shaped materials. As they are “blind” users 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 alongside other rivet nut tools. 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 this 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.
