Hex Rivet Bushes provide a strong, reusable, captivated thread, in panels that are too thin to be tapped conventionally.
They do not suffer under limitations that self-clinching nuts do, and are suitable for installation into the panels of any hardness – such as those made from Stainless Steel.
Hex Rivet Bushes feature a hexagon body, with an undercut shoulder – which provides six points that bite into the panel and excellent torque to turn resistance.
Generally, they are manufactured to suit a specific panel thickness and are available in a number of materials and finishes including Stainless Steel, Aluminium and Brass.
Available from Fastenright in sizes from M2.5 to M12 as standard.
Non-standard sizes, materials and finishes are available to order as specials, including small volume manufacture, modifications and custom parts made to drawings.
