Blind rivets, or break stem rivets, are permanent mechanical fasteners that can be installed in joints on one side of the fixture, thus making them ?blind? to the other side. At Allfasteners, we understand rivets have minimum and maximum grip range and which materials, finishes to use in different applications and environments. These rivets are available in an aluminum finish. These rivets are commonly used for securing into sheet metal, steel, wood or plastic. Due to their high strength and integrity in the harshest environments, the blind rivet is one of the most common styles used in construction applications.
