Product Description

Light Duty Rivet Nut Tool

This compact Light Duty Nutsert Tool is industry fabrication quality and IMHO – one of the best hand tools around. As well, this tool has the improved central tempered shaft with knurled nut installed to Non Standard Cast Factory Fitted Equipment – made stronger to last longer. The Light Duty Nutsert Tool is well designed with reliable, solid construction and a complete set of mandrels for light duty applications (either UNC or Metric). These Mandrels are what are required to ‘set’ a nutsert into a panel.

Application:

Nutserts (Rivet Nuts) are a permanent fastener (nut) inside a closed structure (like a frame tube or a metal post) or behind a panel (like a body panel). This fastening method allows fittings to be screwed into and tightened without needing a wrench behind the panel to hold a nut.  Use of this type of fastening point is common when installing body kits to cars, rear wings, front spoilers / bumpers / scoops, or completing panel work. Because Rivet Nuts are robust and light, they have long been used on aircraft and race cars / bikes. As well, Rivnuts are just plain useful in and around the home, in the workshop for sheet metal work and for tradesman use with box tube or pipe. Basically, Rivet Nuts are used with any application that:

  • has only one side with which to work, or
  • joins parts together for a clean neat application, or
  • needs the installed bits to be easy to adjust and operate once installed.
