About this product

Product overview

• Cheap alternative to screws and nuts
• Requires 3mm minimum hole diameter
• Supplied in packs of 10

Small plastic rivets which can be used as a quick and cheap alternative to screws and nuts for holding together panels, PCBs onto brackets and chassis, etc, providing the fixture is reasonably permanent. The rivet comes in two parts, the head and sleeve. The sleeve pushes through holes in the items to be attached, and the pin is pushed into the sleeve. The insertion of the pin makes the sides of the sleeve splay out, providing a secure grip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed rivets to fix sign plates to my control panels. They where perfect for the job easy fit and correct size to a T.
