How to Measure a Blind Rivet Nut

Flat Head – the rivet nut body length (L) is always measured overall.

B = body diameter

L = body length

H = rivet nut head diameter

T= rivet nut head thickness

A = thread size

G = grip range

Countersunk Head or Reduced Head – the rivet body length (L) is always measured from the top of the head to the end of the body.

B = body diameter

L = body length

H = rivet nut head diameter

T= rivet nut head thickness

A = thread size

G = grip range

How to Install a Blind Rivet Nut

Blind rivet nuts have a simple and rapid installation.

  1. Firstly drill the hole.
  2. To set the nut, screw it onto the threaded mandrel of the setting tool, and insert into the component hole. The nut is then set through the stroke of the setting tool pulling it up onto the material. This causes the collapsible part of the nut to form on the rear of the material or blindside.
  3. After the threaded mandrel of the setting tool is removed, the rivet nut thread is left ready for use.
