Good to know about blind riveters

With a blind riveter, you can join together materials efficiently and permanently without having access to the rear of the material. Riveting pliers, or pop riveters as they are also called, are available in different variants with various features and characteristics.

  • Force-reducing riveting pliers save muscle power in large projects and are suitable for joining thick, hard materials.
  • A rotating head blind riveter is ideal for working in corners and other narrow, hard-to-reach areas.
  • A multi-nozzle blind rivet gun can handle blind rivets of various diameters. This means that there is no need to switch between different nozzles depending on the size of the rivet.
