Rivnut Selection Pack
80 pieces ( 20xM4 + 30xM5 + 30xM6 )
These items allow you to create a threaded hole in sheet metal or plastic.
Ideal for use with classic cars and kit cars where you need to make a neat job ( much neater and stronger than self tapping screws )
Rivnuts also enable you to create a captive nut in a chassis leg or similar section where you cannot get to the inside.
See attached data sheet for technical information on these.
You need a rivnut tool to insert these - why not see our other items for the rivnut tool ( shown in one of the pictures ) .
These are also called nutserts / rivetnuts etc.
These rivnuts are made from heat treated steel with a rust proof coating. Steel rivnuts do weigh slightly more than aluminium ones but the threads are much stronger on the steel version.
These rivnuts have a large flange head - this means that the rivnut is less likely to fall into the drilled hole - this can happen if you are not careful with the smaller head versions - the large head also helps to spread the load.
The splined area just below the head is to help locate the rivnut in the sheet metal work and prevent the insert from turning ( spinning ) after it has been inserted and compressed.
We have made this pack to get you started without having to buy several pack from other vendors and incur multiple postage charges.
Drill hole in sheet material
Push nutsert into hold.
Use tool to "pull" rear part of insert towards the head causing it to buckle and form a permanent captive nut.
