The HEXNUT® fasteners provide the ultimate in spin-out resistance when used in a hex hole.

Rivet Nut USA (a division of Cardinal Components, Inc.) is a Preferred Authorized Bollhoff Distributor of the Bollhoff HEXNUT®. Bollhoff HEXNUT® fasteners are the original trademarked version of “hex body rivet nuts”. To provide our customers the best availability and variety, we also offer non-Bollhoff rivet nuts & fasteners.

Similar to the original Bollhoff RIVNUT® fasteners, the Bollhoff HEXNUT® has a six sided body, rather than a uniform round body. Laser a hex hole into your parent material, install our hex body fastener and vanish your worries of spin-out! These are available in aluminum, steel and stainless steel.

A newer cost-conscious variation is the “half-hex body rivet nut”. Only half the body is hex shaped. The half-hex provides the needed spin-out resistance, but can be manufactured at a lower cost per unit than a traditional hex.

Rivet Nut USA stocks a selection of installation tools for easy-to-use and reliable HEXNUT® installation such as our pneumatic nut insert tools (4090, B4090 & 6703) and manual hand tools (C845, C722, C6000 & 140-2000). Check out our “Install Tools” page for more information.
