Rivet Nuts

Rivet nuts are often referred to as nutserts, threaded inserts or blind rivet nuts. The blind rivet nut’s one-piece design allows it to be securely anchored from a single side the material it’s attached to these highly functional fasteners are available in a variety of styles, sizes and materials. These blind threaded inserts (rivet nuts) can also be used in a wide range of steel, fiberglass, plastic, and composite applications since the rivet nut will not distort the base structure of these materials when properly matched.

Depending on your specific project needs, JHP Fasteners provides threaded inserts (rivet nuts) in various dimensions, styles, and sizes. These unique threaded inserts can feature increased torque strength across numerous grip ranges while being utilized in a wide array of applications. These advantages along with a simple, low-hassle installation process, can save significant time over other types of fasteners that require larger pieces of stand-alone equipment to install.

Threaded Insert Material Variations for your Specific Application Needs

Blind rivet nuts are available as open or closed end nuts. A closed-end rivet nut completely seals out the back end of the rivet nut to keep out environmental debris. A sealant can also be added to protect against moisture and lubricants. At JHP we have rivet nut variations to suit almost any application, however, choosing the right rivet nut for your application depends on several factors:
  • torque value
  • grip range
  • rivet material
  • smooth, ribbed, or hex body style
  • parent (host) material
  • application environment
  • strength of the rivet
  • size of rivet

Nutsert Material Variations & Options

Rivet Nuts from JHP Fasteners are generally made from steel, aluminum or stainless materials and are available with a variety of finishes. The rivet nut you require will be determined by its application and the thickness of the material it will be attached to. Blind rivet nuts are ideal for blind-hole applications in which one side of the host material is not accessible. Applications using screws and nuts need excess hardware that rivet nuts don’t need. JHP’s rivet nut variations, include:

Threaded Insert Installation Process

Inch or metric blind rivet nuts are installed through a compression process of the nut onto the material, which can be achieved with a rivet nut tool which squeezes the nut with parallel or “in-line” forces. In addition, performance matched torque values can be achieved with the proper selection of rivet nut body styles including smooth, ribbed, swage and hex.
