The structural version of our Klamp-Tite® rivet, featuring a visible mechanical lock to give extra strength to the joint.

An ideal rivet for use in thin sheet or low-strength materials because of its large blind-side bearing area. Made of aluminum alloy, and available with an optional underhead washer provides a weatherproof seal.

Assembly applications include domestic appliances, plastic components, automotive plastic assemblies, container, cladding, and commercial vehicles.

Structural and non-structural Klamp-Tite® fasteners are ideal rivets for plastic assembly.
