rivet nut tool, rivnut® installation tool, rivnut® tool, rivnut hand install tool

This tool cuts a “keyway” into the rivet nut hole, which then facilitates the use of rivet nuts with a “keyed” head. Closing the handle of the tool retracts a cutter blade that nips a keyway in thin gauge metal. (Note: A small, round file or guided drill is recommended for cutting keys in heavier gauge metals.) When ordering tool parts, be sure to specify flat or countersunk head and RIVNUT® thread size. Extra cutter blades should be ordered with the tool, and treated as consumables.

  • 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!
