Blind Rivets


Blind Rivets | Blind Pop Rivet Fasteners - Bay Supply Fasteners and Fastening Systems

Blind rivets are two piece assemblies consisting of the rivet body and the accompanying setting mandrel. Another common name for blind rivets is "Pop Rivet". Pop rivets were the original brand name created to describe the popping sound that is made when a blind rivet is set. The advantage of using a blind rivet is because they can be installed from the front side of the application where access to the back side or blind side is not available or necessary.
