Structural Rivets



 



RIVETKING I-Lock Rivets

The RivetKing I-Lock is a structural rivet with an internal locking feature. The locking feature is not visible when the rivet is applied. The mandrel is retained within the shear plane yielding high strength under shear loads and the internal lock insures positive mandrel retention which results in high strength under pullout loads. Typically used in the manufacturing or repair of truck bodies, the I-Lock is leak resistant and has excellent clamp-up force. The I-Lock has a wide grip range and is offered in two diameters and two lengths. The mandrel breaks flush with the head when applied and is set without a special nose piece.
 



RIVETKING Stemlock Rivets

The Stemlock is an advanced structural fastening solution that has among the highest shear and tensile values available because the mandrel is locked in the shear plane. The internal locking mechanism insures positive mandrel retention and will break flush with the head. The Stemlock is designed to form a bearing surface flange at the rear side of the substrate. This rear flange is perfect for thin sheets or imperfect holes offering impressive clamp up forces without deforming the substrate.
 



Tigerbolt Rivets

The Tigerbolt is a structural rivet with an external locking feature. This locking feature is visible after the rivet is applied. When applied, the special nosepiece that is required to set the rivet creates a small expansion of a shoulder on the mandrel in a pocket located on the surface of the rivet head and the mandrel breaks flush with the head. The locking feature can then be inspected and confirmed to be effective during assembly. The Tigerbolt has a stronger clamp up than the I-Lock and is tighter at minimum grip. The mandrel is retained within the shear plane yielding high strength under shear loads and the external lock insures positive mandrel retention which results in high strength under pullout loads.
