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 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.
All Blind Rivets (or Pop Rivets) have 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 using the rivet gun, 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.
The following is a list of the range of products we stock that are used to fasten to materials together, using riveting, self-clinching, welding or traditional hammering techniques.
More details on each range, including installation techniques, are available on the relevant category pages or on our Guides and Tips section.
If you cannot find the size or finish that you require, please contact us as we can generally order most types of fasteners.
