Plastic rivets or pop rivets as they are also known, are used to join two pieces together permanently and are able to withstand vibrations and tensions better than a screw or bolt. The rivet's unthreaded shaft is inserted through holes in the materials being joined, and the mandrel (a pin-like tool) is used to expand the rivet against the blind side of the join. Once the rivet meets the face of the materials, it forms a tight and secure joint.
Our range is made up of many different types and styles of plastic rivets such as:
Plastic rivets have a wide range of applications in many industries, including automotive, construction, electronics, and furniture, where they are used for fastening and securing plastic and metal panels together.
They are also commonly used in computers, appliances, and POS displays, among others. Plastic rivets can provide a clean, tamper-proof fixing solution that is non-corrosive and non-conductive. They come in a variety of types and sizes to meet the specific needs of each application, and they are easy to install using a range of tools.
Drive Rivets are a style of rivet that is installed by placing the rivet body into a panel hole and pushing the pre-assembled plunger downwards into the assembly. The rivet expands in the application, providing a secure and tight fit. They can also be installed using a Push Rivet Installation Tool for faster installation, which is available to buy elsewhere.
Drive Rivets provide a fast, economical and permanent joining solution. These rivets provide solid connections by means of blind side fixing. Our product range offers good electrical insulation properties, as well as resistance to vibration, abrasion and corrosion.

Our range offers good electric insulation, as well as vibration, abrasion and corrosion resistance. They can be used on electronic, automotive or machine applications. Canoe Clips insert neatly into panel holes, and are ideal for long-term signs and displays. They can be removed and reused on occasion; however, thanks to their extra firm grip, they are better suited to applications that do not change very often.
Push In Rivet has a bevelled head design. The bevel design helps facilitates efficient assembly and removal.
The rivet is installed by quickly and easily inserting it into the work piece. Press down on the pin, which engages the "H-shaped" grommet. Once the pin is inserted into the grommet, the grommet legs expand and lock the rivet assembly firmly into position. Once the rivet assembly is installed, the head of the pin protrudes from the panel surface, but gives a nice clean and finished look nonetheless.
Fir Tree Rivet that features a double ended design; allowing for the blind fixing of two panels from the center, so that no fastener head is visible.
The simple design allows the rivet to be pressed neatly into position and provides a clean finish to your application. Ideal for joining and securing soft sheet materials, such as; board, rubber and secondary panels.
More durable than using adhesive, provides high pull out loads and they are quick and easy to install by hand.
Drive Fasteners feature a hollow body that increases flexibility during the insertion and removal process - making them easy to install and remove. The grommet expands as the pin is inserted, providing a snug fit.
Our range includes material options made from Natural Acetal with a UL94 HB flame resistances rating and Nylon 6/6 in Black and Natural that offer a flammability rating of UL94 V0.
Drive Fasteners are a multi-purpose rivet, ideal for applications in need of a front-mounted rivet. These rivets mean that connecting, mounting and fastening is feasible without the need for tools. They can be used as an effective, decorative hole plug.
Folding Leg Push-In Rivets have a foldable leg design that provides a secure grip for a range of applications and materials.
Pushing the pin into the rivet body causes the legs to expand outwards, allowing them to get a firm grip on the material in the assembly. The rivet legs expand to a distance of 0.730 inches.
This expansion allows the rivet to cover a larger surface area, but as a result has a weaker tensile strength. This makes these rivets more suited to thinner applications, such as cardboard boxes and other porous materials. Once installed, the rivet cannot be removed from the outside of the box.
Key Hole Clips have a hollow interior that is shaped like a key hole. This design allows the clip to collapse more completely for easy finger-pressure assembly. The tapered, bullet-style point of the rivet clip helps guide into a panel.
These clips provide good electrical insulation. They also have resistance to vibration, abrasion and corrosion - making them a durable and cost-effective fastening solution. Available for a range of hole diameters and panel thicknesses.
This Push In Rivet is a type of panel fastener designed for optimal assembly and removal for a range of applications, particularly those that require regular maintenance, as well as fast assembly and removal.

Material: AcetalColor: Natural
Tough Rivets have a quick and easy push-fit design. They have a one-piece design with a pre-driven pin that allows the rivet to be quickly installed by hand, or with automatic equipment. They can be easily removed by pulling the pin from the grommet.
Our range of Tough Rivets are suitable for applications requiring a push-in, front-mounted (blind-side fixing) fastener, which can be removed and reused. The rivets provide that and more! They also benefit from strong vibration resistance and are a solid choice for lightweight applications.
The rivet has a robust design that stays tough in its structure, but still provides a clean and tidy finish. These rivets are strong, reliable and are a highly economical choice.
Two-Piece Rivets are part of a two piece fastening solution that is used with an Edge Connector assembly (available to buy separately).
The range is comprised of a Body (piece "A") and a Pin (piece "B"), which are sold separately. The Body is inserted through the connector and through the application chassis. The Pin is then pushed or tapped into the Body to secure the connector to the chassis.
The Pin can later be removed to allow for connector replacement or maintenance.
Heat Sink Rivets are spring mounted. They are used to fasten a heat sink to a processor chip on a PCB. The metal spring provides continuous pressure to the heat sink until thermal adhesive cures.
Our range has two options. One has a Chrome Plated Steel spring and the other a Stainless Steel spring. The Stainless Steel option can also be installed using a cross head screwdriver.
Quarter Turn Panel Fasteners engage receptacles and are fastened by turning the stud about 90 degrees - a process known as a 'quarter-turn rotation'. The fastener provides a predictable holding force and offers a detent in locked position that resists opening in error. A solution that is quick, but secure in its assembly. They are a fast fastener that provide a permanent mounting solution. An ideal choice, suitable for security panels and components that need to be replaced in a hurry.
To install and remove; Use a flat-head screwdriver or a coin and give the fastener a quarter-turn. This releases the bottom panel while retaining the fastener in the removable panel. Alternatively, drive the plunger into the grommet with a hammer that locks two panels together.
Our Snap fasteners include a Nylon option that is flame-rated UL94 V2, and an option that features a Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) female washer that comes with a Polypropylene (PP) male clip.
The rivet assembly includes the male clip and the female washer that are used to join two surfaces together. They are an ideal choice for corrugated panels.
