Rivnut Fastener Installation is Quick and Easy

Step 1

The RIVNUT® fastener is threaded onto the mandrel of an installation tool.


Step 2

The RIVNUT® fastener, on the tool mandrel, is inserted into the hole drilled for installation.


Step 3

The mandrel retracts and pulls the threaded portion of the RIVNUT® fastener shank toward the blind side of the work, forming a bulge in the unthreaded shank area.

Step 4

The RIVNUT® fastener is clinched securely in place. The mandrel is unthreaded, leaving the internal RIVNUT® threads intact.


Blind Nut Plate

The properly installed RIVNUT® fastener makes an excellent blind nut plate for simple screw attachments.
