Blind Rivets


Blind rivets, commonly referred to as "pop" rivets are tubular and are supplied with a mandrel through the centre. 

They are used mainly when access to the joint is available from only one side.

The typical assembly process requires the operator to install the rivet in the nose of the tool by hand and then actuate the tool.

Air or electric actuated tools are also available and typically used where many rivets are to be installed.


The rivet is placed in a drilled hole and is set by pulling the mandrel head into the rivet body, expanding the rivet body and causing it to flare against the reverse side.

As the head of the mandrel reaches the face of the blind side material, the pulling force is resisted, and at a predetermined force, the mandrel snaps at its break point.

Available in a wide range of materials and sizes, with different types of heads and multiple finishes.
