What is a CherryMAX rivet?

CherryMAX® is a locked spindle blind rivet with a visibly inspectable mechanical locking device and its own installation washer, which eliminates the problems resulting from worn tool anvils. It is called a “bulbed” fastener due to its large blind side bearing surface, developed during the installation process.

What is CherryLOCK blind rivet?

The bulbed CherryLOCK® rivet is a complete shear fastening system. Its features can be utilized for optimum strength and performance in both thick and thin sheets. It provides the highest possible design integrity, particularly in double dimple or high vibration areas.

How do you read a rivet size?

How do I choose a rivet size?

The length of the rivet should be equal to the thickness of both objects you are fastening, plus 1.5 times the diameter of the rivet’s stem. 3/32” (2MM) FOR UP TO 3/32” (2MM) THICKNESS. 1/8” (3MM) FOR UP TO 1/8” (3MM) THICKNESS. 1/4” (6MM) FOR UP TO 1/4” (6MM) THICKNESS.

What is the difference between Cherry lock and CherryMAX?

Features. Both the Cherrymax and Cherrylok rivets are blind rivets, only needing installation on one side of a job item. Cherrylock rivets are placed on both thick and thin job items. On the other hand, Cherrymax rivets are meant for thin items prone to injury from alternative rivets.

Are CherryMAX rivets structural?

CherryMAX® “Bulbed” Rivet The CherryMAX® rivet is the most reliable, high strength structural fastener with visual inspectability in the world today.

How are rivets specified?

The rivet is specified by the diameter of its shank.

What are the identification markings on the rivets?

Markings on the heads of rivets are used to classify their characteristics. These markings may be either a raised teat, two raised teats, a dimple, a pair of raised dashes, a raised cross, a single triangle, or a raised dash; some other heads have no markings.

Can a pop rivet be too long?

Body Length It differs from grip range (which will be explained next), but is an important measurement when considering clearance on the blind side of the material being fastened—a rivet that’s too long may not properly fit or could negatively impact whatever resides behind the hole.

What is a Huck rivet?

Huck structural rivets are a one-piece fastener that work a little differently to standard rivets, as there is an internal mechanism that locks a portion of the pin (mandrel) inside the rivet’s body. This creates an additional layer of material that assists in increasing the rivets strength.

What is the difference between Cherry lock and Cherrymax?
