Slotted Shank Rivet Nuts

The slotted shank Rivet Nut is around body, internally threaded, blind fastener with slotted shanks. It performs as a rivet to fasten two or more materials together. It performs as a nut for the attached of a mating part with a screw. The slotted shank Rivet Nuts forms large cloverleaf-like flaps on the backside of the parent material when upset which distributes the installation and working loads over a wide area. The slotted shank Rivet Nut is also offered in a Pre-Bulbed version where the shank is partially upset to facilitate installation with torque controlled hand or power tools. The large footprint works particularly well in softer materials. The Slotted Shank Rivet Nut was designed for rigid fastening in thin sheet metal, fiberglass and plastic. Typical application can be found in the automotive, recreational vehicle, boating, electronics and appliance industries. Slotted Shank Rivet Nuts are available in aluminum, steel or stainless steel. Unified thread sizes of 10-32, 10-24, 1/4-20, 5/16-18 and 3/8-16 are offered. Metric thread sizes of M5, M6, M8 and M10 are also available.
