Pull-Thru (PT) Rivets

[ Click here for HTML5 version ]

Ideal where clearance is limited and a flush set is required on both sides of the application. The Pull-Thru (PT) rivet is a steel countersunk blind fastener designed to set surface flush on both sides of an application (blind side protrusion < 0.4mm/0.015").

The PT rivet is best used in the assembly of any product where clearance is extremely limited and protrusion of the rivet body from the application surface must be either minimized or eliminated. As the PT rivet sets, the mandrel head remains integral with the mandrel, assuring no loose mandrel heads in the assembled product. These features and benefits make the PT rivet unique in the marketplace.

PT rivets are widely used in the electronics industry where space is at a premium but also lend themselves to many low-clearance industrial applications as well (see chart below).
