How to Adjust the Power on a Spin-Spin Rivet Nut Tool

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

For the ideal rivet nut placements, you should be comfortable adjusting the power on your Spin-Spin rivet nut tool. To guide those who are having difficulty in managing this, here is a quick outline of the necessary steps.

How to Adjust the Power on a Spin-Spin Rivet Nut Tool

1.            Find the air regulator that is included with your rivet nut tool.

2.            Spin it onto the bottom of the rivet nut tool.

3.            Connect the air nipple to your tool.

4.            Twist the air regulator to control the power to the tool.

Note: As with most rivet nut tools, refrain from double stroking as this may damage the tool.

That’s it—very simple. Be sure not to lose the included air regulator if you want to avoid headaches later on.

With the proper power, your riv nut tool will become your best friend for all your installation projects. As with our other tutorials found on the blog, we have shot a video tutorial on this same process so that we are 100% clear on what you need to do to have the correct tool power.

We hope this blog helped you, and are happy to answer any other riveting questions. For even more in-depth information on how to use riveting tools, be sure to check out the rest of our blog.

Pop Rivet Style and Orlock Stuctural Rivet

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

I love the invention of Pop Rivets aka blind rivets. They can provide superior fastening solutions. This orlock rivet has taken some great features from the Pop brand of “blind rivet” and done something new and innovative. This  rivet, which is called and Orlock blind rivet, has a back side flange. Notice how it forms a washer-like flange on the back, providing a large “footprint” on the blind side of the workpiece. Revolutionary idea because distributes the clamping load of the rivet over a wider surface area, like a nut and bolt can. All this, even if you can’t see or reach the blind side to put the nut on. Cool.
