Cardinal’s 6703 rivet nut installation tool (also known as Bollhoff’s P3007 pneumatic installation tool) offers heavy-duty workhorse capability at the highest and most demanding installation loads. The 6703 is typically used to install rivet nuts, Bollhoff RIVNUTS® & RIVSTUDS®. (Bollhoff’s P3007PN tool, if you need to install Bollhoff PLUSNUTS®). “Pull to Pressure” allows the user to initially set-up the tool to a predetermined installation force. The tool will properly and consistently install every rivet nut, even including if the material thicknesses varies from install to install. “Pull to Pressure” greatly reduces the risk of bad installs. To ensure you are outfitted with the correct tool for your application and fastener, please call or email us with your details!

  • Mandrel & Anvil required for each thread size.  These are considered consumables of the tool, please keep backup(s) on hand!
  • Please consult us on your exact fastener and application to assure you invest in the most capable tool for the job.
    • Note:  Material type of fastener is critical.  Example: Install tool may be set up for a 1/2-13 rivet nut, but tool is only capable of installing a soft aluminum 1/2-13 rivet nut, and can not install a harder steel or hardest stainless steel 1/2-13 rivet nut.  A heavier duty tool would be required to install the harder steel or hardest stainless steel 1/2-13 rivet nut. Call us with questions!
