What is a POP Rivet?
A POP Rivet is a blind fastener which can be inserted and set from one side of the workpiece. Depending on the application, they can be used as replacements for welds, adhesives, screws, nuts and bolts.
A typical POP Rivet is made up of two key parts; the rivet body and the setting mandrel. The POP Rivet is inserted into a pre-drilled hole in the materials you're joining together. The mandrel is gripped by a POP Rivet gun or tool. The Riveting tool pulls the mandrel through the body of the rivet and sets it. This forms a strong, tight and reliable joint.
