Self-piercing split rivets are frequently used by leather makers, carpenters and metalworkers to join softer materials such as textiles, leather, plastic or wood. They’ve made their way into fashion as well, and can be seen on handbags, footwear and more. Also known as bifurcated rivets, split rivets are designed with a split in the shaft; the resulting two legs or prongs are folded back once the rivet is applied to join the materials together. Split rivets can be found in a variety of materials, including brass- and nickel-plated steel, nylon and plastic. Zoro also features a variety of hand rivet tools and air rivet tools.
