Bollhoff RIVSTUD®, or Rivet Nut with Pre-Installed Male Threaded Stud, side diagram

Rivet Nut USA (an operating division of  Cardinal Components, Inc.) is proud to be your Preferred Authorized Bollhoff Distributor. To provide our customers with the best availability and variety, we also offer non-Bollhoff rivet nuts & fasteners.

  • A female rivet nut with the male threaded bolt already installed (pre-installed) into the rivet nut. Slide the secondary attachment over the male bolt and finally, secure the secondary attachment with a female hex nut (or similar).
  • A rivet nut combined with a pre-installed threaded stud is great for vertical or hanging applications.
    • (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 rivet nut stud (Bollhoff’s brand name is the RIVSTUD®!).
