The Bollhoff RIVKLE® is similar to the original styled Rivnut® product line, but features standard European design for “true metric” hole sizes. As a global company, Bollhoff manufactures a wide variety of styles and thread sizes of Rivnut® fasteners, including the Bollhoff RIVKLE®. Rivet Nut USA distributes the entire RIVKLE® product line, which includes a number of materials such as steel, aluminum and stainless steel, body styles such as round, half-hex, full hex and head thickness such as standard, thin, super-thin and countersunk.

Rivet Nut USA (an operating division of Cardinal Components, Inc) is YOUR Preferred Authorized Bollhoff Distributor of all Bollhoff products, including the Bollhoff RIVKLE®. To provide our customers the best availability and variety, we also offer non-Bollhoff rivet nuts & fasteners.

RIVKLE® Features

  • Multiple head thicknesses to provide increased load bearing (large head) or near countersunk benefits while saving the secondary option of actually having to add a countersink feature (extra small / thin head)
  • Fasteners are manufactured with proven six sigma quality processes and provides consistency in fastener that allows for automated robotic assembly to succeed in demanding, high volume OEM production environments.
  • Increased turning resistance (ribbed body) or super spin out resistance (hex body).
  • Superior corrosion resistance (stainless steel) and high temperature compatibility.

RIVSTUD® Standard Blind Rivet Studs

  • A rivet nut with the bolt already installed (pre-installed) into the rivet nut.

    • (e.g., A single installer can use RIVSTUDS® to reduce hassle of aligning and installing a wall-mounted air conditioner unit on a city bus.  The RIVSTUDS® make it much easier to lift, align and push on a heavy AC unit.  Once the AC unit has been pushed onto the four RIVSTUDS®, it’s as easy as tightening the hex nuts onto the RIVSTUDS® and the AC unit is securely installed.)
  • Installed with the same tooling as a regular rivet nut (special headset required; always in stock!).
  • Replace a clinch stud or weld stud with a RIVSTUD®!
