The HEXNUT® fasteners provide the ultimate in spin-out resistance when used in a hex hole. Rivet Nut USA (an operating division of Cardinal Components, Inc.) is a Preferred Authorized Bollhoff Distributor of the Bollhoff HEXNUT®. Bollhoff HEXNUT® threaded inserts are the original trademarked version of “hex body rivet nuts”. Did you know we’re the largest in-stock specialty fastener distributor in the USA? To provide our customers the best availability and variety, we also offer non-Bollhoff rivet nuts & fasteners. Different from the original round body Bollhoff RIVNUT® fasteners, the Bollhoff HEXNUT® has a six-sided body that increases spin-out torque resistance. Laser a hex hole into your parent material, install our hex body fastener and vanish your worries of spin-out! You could also punch a hex hole into sheet metal and hydro-formed tubing for use of a hex bodied rivet nut using our 9991 hex punch cutting tool. The thick wall construction of a Bollhoff HEXNUT® allows for ultimate tensile and push-out strength. These threaded nut inserts 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. To learn more about HEXNUT® (hex body) fasteners, please refer to a sampling of options below!
