Grooved Rivets are designed to be installed within a hole made of soft materials such as timber, plastics or fibreglass. When set correctly, the annular rings around the body will bite into the timber or plastic and will radially expand within the hole.
Keep in mind, this rivet is designed to expand within a hole. It is not intended to expand at the rear side like most blind rivets.
Groove rivets are ideal in timber, plastic or fibrous material applications, the outside grooves expand holding the rivet in place. Rivets are a low cost, tamper proof and uniformly set fastener that won't torque out like a threaded fastener.
