RIVETS

Rivet is a permanent mechanical fastener, consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft with a head on one end. The end opposite to the head is called the tail. On installation, the rivet is placed in a punched or drilled hole, and the tail is upset or bucked (i.e., deformed), so that it expands to about 1.5 times the original shaft diameter, holding the rivet in place. CBH supplies a full range of varieties for rivets such as Bifurcated rivets, Blind pop rivets, Hollow and Snap head rivets and can satisfy customers’ requirements by holding a permanent stock of material. To distinguish between the two ends of the rivet, the original head is called the factory head and the deformed end is called the shop head or buck-tail.
