Blind rivets, also commonly referred to as POP Rivets, are mainly used in applications where there is no access to the rear (blind side) of the joint. Rivets have a two-piece construction; one is called the rivet body, shell, or hat and another is called the stem or mandrel. Both the hat and mandrel are pre-assembled and ready to use. Rivets are installed by using a riveting tool to draw the mandrel which causes the body to deform and clamp down on the joint. Upon reaching the designed clamping force, the mandrel snaps and is discarded. A benefit of blind rivets is that they are not material specific meaning they can combine two different material types together the same way.
Open End Blind Rivets are the most popular rivet variety available.

Instaling a Blind Rievt
Before rivet installation can occur, several things must be taken into account.
- Host Materials
- Head Shape Design
- Rivet Length & Diameter
- Grip Range
- Load and Shear Values
- Rivet Installation Tool
Installing a blind rivet is a simple and extremely fast process ,only the few simple steps listed below.
- Drill a hole into the materials.
- Choose a place the rivet into the two materials.
- Place the Rivet Installation Tool on the mandrel of the rivet.
- Activate the tool (usually by some lever or trigger mechanism) to pull the mandrel towards the surface.
Blind Rivet Applications:
Open End Blind Rivets can be used just about anywhere if they are properly installed. Most of them are used in Aircraft manufacturing, Machinery, Sheet metal fabricating, Small Electronics, Structural Beams, Battleships and Submersibles.
How To Remove a Rivet ?
Blind Rivets are meant to be permanent joints but sometimes must be removed. To remove blind rivets, take a drill bit that is the same diameter as the hat or a size larger and drill through the rivet. Make sure the drill bit is rated for the rivet material. If before or during the rivet drilling process the rivet begins to spin, stop and cover the rivet in blue painters or duct tape. This should be enough to hold the rivet in place as the drill eats through it. Once extracted, the same hole can be used for a new rivet.
POP End Rivets can be used just about anywhere if they are properly installed. Most of them are used in RVs, Trailers, Aircrafts, Machinery, Jeans, Small Electronics, Structural Beams, Battleships and Submersibles.
