Flat Head Hexagon Rivet Nut Insert Nut introduction
Flat-head, full-hex rivet nuts provide strong fascinating threads, such as box or tubular sections, in thin sheets and in applications that only touch the side of the panel. Available in steel and stainless steel.
They can be mounted on panels as thin as 0.5mm and are not limited by the maximum hardness of the self-locking nut, so they are suitable for mounting in hard or non-ductile panels.
Rivet nuts have advantages over other fixed fasteners because they can be installed in the field or used for repair work to replace previously installed fasteners. The advantage of installing from one side of the application means that you never need to access the back of the panel.
Special tools are required for installation - tools range from very low cost hand tools for small batches to pneumatic automatic mounting guns for high volume applications.
