Rivet Nuts

Rivet nuts provide a clean and sturdy housing for bolts and screws to connect with when the mating material is too thin or weak to support the fastener on its own. These unique fasteners are also blind, which means they can be installed on one side of the mating material when the other side is not accessible.

They’re also really easy to install. Start by drilling a hole that will fit the rivet nut. Then, attach the rivet nut onto the rod known as a mandrel of a handheld rivet nut tool. Insert the rivet nut into the hole, squeeze the handles of the tool, and remove the tool from the nut by unscrewing the mandrel.
