Nose Assembly Know-How: How they interact with your Huck Gun

Understanding Nose Assemblies.

A nose assembly is the prerequisite attachment that installs either Huck bolts or  structural rivets, in essence the link between the Huck gun and the fastener. Without a nose assembly you will not be able to install a Huck fastener via a Huck gun.

Huck guns and their interchangeable nose assemblies provides the versatility to install either a one-piece structural rivet or a two-piece pin & collar Huck bolt. It is important to understand nose assemblies and to coordinate the tool with the nose to the correct fastener type and size.
