Blind rivets and nuts

Blind Rivets

Commonly referred to as POP® rivets, these are tubular and are supplied with a mandrel through the center.

The rivet assembly is inserted into a hole drilled through the parts to be joined and a specially designed tool is used to draw the mandrel into the rivet. This expands the blind end of the rivet and then the mandrel snaps off.

Blind Rivet Nuts

The Blind Rivet Nut or Grip-Sert, as it was originally known, forms part of the TR Fastenings sheet metal product range. Since early 2015 we have increased our range considerably and now have more stock and variations available than ever before.

This product is designed to offer a permanent female thread in sheet metal that already has a drilled or punched hole. The Blind Rivet Nut then secures itself by collapsing the body to create a secure fit on both sides of the host material.
