Side Bar Fitting Tool (M8) for Land Rover Freelander 1


Rivet nut tool M8

This is the tool required for fitting the side bars onto a Freelander 1.

Many people have found that they are having difficulty getting a Rivet nut / Nutsert tool and so we have produced these simple to use tools.

The tool is basically a washer welded to a stick but one face of the washer is brass ( low friction ) and the other is knurled steel ( high friction )

The tool is placed over a fitting bolt and then tightened into the rivet nut.

As the bolt is tightened the head of the bolt becomes tight up against the tool and then as you tighten the rivet nut will compress as the bolt is tightened.

This is a simple and effective tool and it has the advantage it can be used in tight places.

This listing is for a M8 rivet nut tool and instructions for use.

This can be used with all M8 Rivet nuts ( any length and any material )
