Description

Our proprietary Pull-Thru rivets are the ideal solution when clearance is extremely limited and a flush set to the application surface is required on both sides. Our PT rivet solves these issues in a totally unique way.

As the PT rivet sets, the mandrel head remains integral with the mandrel, assuring no loose mandrel heads in the assembled product. The PT rivet is a steel countersunk blind fastener designed to set surface flush on both sides of an application (blind side protrusion < 0.4mm/0.015″).

PT rivets are widely used in the electronics industry where space is at a premium but also lend themselves to many low-clearance industrial applications, like car sunroofs, automotive speakers, home cabinet drawers, and refrigerator drawers, among many others uses.

Installation using our POP® Rivet Presenter (RP) Automated Riveting System facilitates a cycle time as fast as 2 seconds.
