Tubular rivets are used to fasten duct work or assemble mechanical products and electronics. Tubular rivets have a hollow shaft to reduce the amount of force required to apply them. Rivets with a hollow tip are called semi tubular. Both types can be affixed loosely to function as a pivot point.
Like its name implies, the tubular rivet has a hollow shank with the remainder of the fastener being similar to the solid rivet. The tubular rivet is used to fasten thin sheets of material like plastics, leather, sheet metal, and pivot points when movement is necessary.
Are tubular rivets strong?
Tubular rivets are industrial-strength metal fasteners used for attaching leather straps to heavy-duty bag projects, They have an extra-strength hold, great for bags designed to carry a heavy load. Tubular rivets must be set with a tubular rivet peening tool and a non-rubber mallet on a hard, stable surface.
