About Rivet Nuts
A rivet nut, or blind rivet nut is a type of internally threaded fastener used in the automotive and aerospace industries. What makes the blind rivet different from other fasteners is that it can be anchored from just one side. Rivet nuts are manufactured in either open or closed versions and are made of steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Rivet nuts can be attached using a nutsert tool or hand riveter tool - installation kits are available that include a variety of tool sizes.
