Fastener Installation Guide

In addition to our huge inventory of fastener products, JHP Fasteners also offers the tools you need to install them. Use the information below to find the right installation tool for the fasteners you need. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information on these or any of our products.

Large Flanged Ribbed Rivet Nuts

Ideal for moderate torque applications, for adding threaded connection points in material that is too thin for tapping, and for applications where only one side of the host material is accessible. The ribbed exterior helps hold the rivet nut in place and prevent spinout when installed in soft materials.

To install these fasteners, we recommend the SSG or Flex5 family of pneumatic/ hydro-pneumatic rivet nut installation tools. The SSG-801 is designed for steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, M3, and M4; SSG-802 is intended for steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 10-24, 10-32, 1/4-20, 1/4-28, M5, and M6; SSG-803 is made for use with steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 5/16-18, 5/16-24, 3/8-16, 3/8-24, M8, and M10. The Flex5-P and Flex5-S can be used to install thread sizes #6, #8, #10, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, and M3 through M10.

Blind Ribbed Rivet Nuts, Small Flange

The ribbed exteriors of these rivet nuts give them greater torque-to-turn resistance than similar, non-ribbed fasteners when installed in soft materials. Unlike the large flanged rivet nut, the small flange offers a near flush installation. These versatile, durable, high-strength rivet nuts are well-suited to a wide range of applications.

These blind ribbed rivet nuts can be installed via the application of steady, parallel squeezing force, either manually or with an SSG or Flex5 rivet nut installer. The SSG-801 is used with steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, M3, and M4; the SSG-802 is designed for steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 10-24, 10-32, 1/4-20, 1/4-28, M5, and M6; the SSG-803 is intended for steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 5/16-18, 5/16-24, 3/8-16, 3/8-24, M8, and M10. Flex5-P and Flex5-S models are designed to install thread sizes #6, #8, #10, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, and M3 through M10.

 

Half-Hex Blind Rivet Nut

Of our standard styles of rivet nut, half-hex blind rivet nuts can withstand the highest levels of torque and provide the best spinout protection. This makes them ideal for blind-hole installation in heavy duty and/or industrial applications.

Half-hex blind rivet nuts can be installed at almost any point during the sheet metal assembly process due to the benefit of only needing access to one side the host material. For proper installation, we recommend the SSG or Flex5 family of pneumatic/hydro-pneumatic rivet nut installation tools.  SSG models accommodate aluminum and steel fasteners—the SSG-801 is designed to install thread sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, M3, and M4; the SSG-802 is made for thread sizes 10-24, 10-32, 1/4-20, 1/4-28, M5, and M6; and the SSG-803 is intended for thread sizes 5/16-18, 5/16-24, 3/8-16, 3/8-24, M8, and M10. The Flex5-P and Flex5-S are designed for thread sizes #6, #8, #10, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, and M3 through M10.

 

Blind Rivet Nut, Smooth Flange/Smooth Body

These blind rivet nuts provide a robust, versatile alternative to standard nuts and bolts. A low profile design provides near-flush installation with no special hole preparation required. Reliable and cost-effective, our small flange/smooth body blind rivet nuts are suitable for a wide range of applications.

Installation is easy and less labor-intensive than processes associated with nuts and bolts. These fasteners can be installed using hand tools or an SSG or Flex5 rivet nut installer. Model SSG-801 is used with steel and aluminum blind rivet nuts with thread sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, M3, and M4; SSG-802 is designed for steel and aluminum rivet nuts with thread sizes 10-24, 10-32, 1/4-20, 1/4-28, M5, and M6; SSG-803 is made for installing steel and aluminum fasteners with thread sizes 5/16-18, 5/16-24, 3/8-16, 3/8-24, M8, and M10. The Flex5-P and Flex5-S are designed for installing thread sizes #6, #8, #10, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, and M3 through M10.

Blind Rivet Nut, Pre-Bulbed/Slotted Body

With superior pull-out resistance assisted by a large shoulder and corrosion resistant finishes, pre-bulbed/slotted body blind rivet nuts are perfect for use with plastic materials as well as thin sheet metals.

Installation is quick and easy and requires no special tooling. The pre-bulbed design reduces the amount of force needed for installation and minimizes the volume of loose hardware required for assembly. Installation can be performed using hand tools or an SSG spin/spin rivet nut installation tool. The model SSG-801 is built to install rivet nuts with thread sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, M3, and M4; the SSG-802 is used for thread sizes 10-24, 10-32, 1/4-20, 1/4-28, M5, and M6; and the SSG-803 is designed for thread sizes 5/16-18, 5/16-24, 3/8-16, 3/8-24, M8, and M10.
