Rivet nuts

Rivet Nuts Details

A rivet nut, also known as a kind rivet nut, blind rivet nut, or rivnut, is a mechanical fastener that, as the name suggests, is a variation of the standard rivet, is a one-piece internally threaded and counterbored tubular rivet that can be anchored entirely from one side. Once installed, no finishing work is required, it is a kind of threaded insert. As an added benefit of not only being a dependable fastener, they are ready to use with clean threads available for screw attachments.

Rivet nuts are the perfect replacement for weld nuts. Weld nuts are environmentally unfriendly, expensive, and difficult to use. Weld nuts require expensive equipment and labor costs, while rivet nuts use low-cost equipment and low labor costs

Rivet Nuts come in a variety of diameters and lengths. We carry them in coarse and fine thread. Listed below are the diameters we carry:

Rivet nuts are typically available in aluminum, steel, and stainless steel (sometimes, brass). Manufacturers in all industries, including automotive, appliance, food equipment, aerospace, rely on threaded rivet nuts to enhance manufacturing capability and strip out production costs.

Everywhere a strong, easy-to-install blind fastener is required, In the field of aviation, rivet nuts are often used to attach various items, such as static discharges and inspection access covers, to the surface of an aircraft. rivet nuts are an ideal replacement for weld nuts because they will not distort base materials, eliminate weld splatter, toxic fumes, and other by-products of the welding process, and can be installed in many different kinds of material including steel plastic, composites, and fiberglass

Also, our custom fastener, bolts, screws are widely used in the below industries

  • Electronics
  • Petrochemicals
  • Consumer products
  • Transportation
  • Agriculture
  • Heavy machinery
  • Construction

thread inserts application

There are so many types of thread inserts and insert nuts are that they are used for a wide range of applications with different types of materials.

 There are two types: one is designed to form a bulge on the backside of the panel as a screw is tightened in its threads. The other is similarly drawn in using a screw but is drawn into the sleeve instead of creating a bulge


  • Flat head
  • Countersunk head
  • Small countersunk head


  • Round body
  • Knurled
  • Hex Part body

Materials and finishes

  • Aluminum
  • Galvanished steel
  • A2 A4 Stainless steel


The open end of the shank has the most compact design of any blind rivet nut and the widest range of strength and stability, the screw should cover the entire length of the thread


This design prevents any leaks on the blind side, pressure-tight applications require an additional seal under the head or shank

Frequently Asked Questions

Rivet nuts are easy-to-install, reliable fasteners that can provide strong load-bearing threads into weak or thin gauge materials such as castings, housings, panels, tubes, and extrusions. Additionally, because of their wide grip range tolerance, rivet nuts can be installed into a variety of material thicknesses.

Some are made of rubber to create a watertight seal. Whatever type of rivet nut you choose, they all have similar advantages: They are blind fasteners, so they are reliable, strong, and vibration-resistant

The cell holds up to 35 gallons. The fuel cell weighs roughly 225 pounds when full. I have been at some pretty crazy angles off road with fuel in the tank and have had zero issues. I have faith in my rivnuts, but I used a quality tool for installation

Standard rivet nuts must be used with through holes in harder materials such as steel or aluminum and do not work as well in softer materials like wood or plastic

The rivet nut itself can be installed into a variety of different materials including metal, plastic, fiberglass and carbon fiber. It is used in a wide array of applications in the automotive, heavy truck, and manufacturing industries as they move toward making their products both lightweight and easier to make.

The most common rivet nut styles include knurled and hex open ended bodies. Both styles provide spinout resistance when torque is applied from tightening or loosening threaded fasteners. The open ended body allows for more flexibility by not limiting the length of the fastener that can be used.
