Blind rivets are an extremely valuable cylindrical nail-like fastener, that also features a mandrel. Blind rivets are also known as break stem rivets.They allow objects to be fastened together when access is only possible from one side. This provides any effortless way to connect two objects when one side is impossible to reach. A Blind rivet is installed by passing it through the material via a tight hole. A riveter then pulls the mandrel back, deforming the rivet until the mandrel snaps, which allows the rivet to hold the material pieces in place.
