Review of 1/8″ multigrip rivets
When buying 1/8″ multigrip rivets there is a US manufacturer who makes and stocks 1/8″ diameter multigrip rivets in numerous head sizes and popular colors. Yes, COLORED 1/8″ multigrip rivets in black, white and red, in both the standard dome head and the large head size. Multigrip rivets have a broader grip, or working range, which should replace at least two conventional open end blind rivets. The aDP Rivet brand, Ultimate (multigrip) Rivets, can replace up to six conventional rivet sizes. Second, multigrip rivets have a little more tolerance when it comes to application hole size. Multigrip rivets will function properly if the application hole is a little over-sized, (about 10%), which is beneficial since real world applications often present such a condition. The third advantage is 1/8″ multi grip rivets have a bigger and/or wider, flatter blind size, or back side footprint. This presents itself as more bearing surface, holding strength when compared to conventional rivets.
As so often is the case, all rivets are not created, or manufactured equally.
Recognizing a need for 1/8″ diameter, aDP Rivet introduced it’s new technology, Ultimate 1/8″ multigrip rivets. The product has lead to a new family of American manufactured Ultimate multigrip rivets. These Ultimate rivets provide over a dozen advantages when compared to conventional, and other multi grip rivets.
First, aDP’s Ultimate Rivets can replace up to six conventional rivet sizes and up to four multigrip rivets. For the ultimate in riveting, aDP Rivet offers a “One rivet size fastens all” from 1/16″ thin, up to 3/4″ thick! No other rivet comes close to matching aDP’s latest technology.
Second: Ultimate Rivets fill over-sized application holes twice a much as other multi grip rivets. aDP’s 3/16″ diameter Ultimate rivets will fill application holes which are about 25% over-sized. This feature makes Ultimate rivets extremely easy to use as the application condition is much less critical.
Third: Ultimate Rivets clamp tighter and provide a wider blind side footprint than other multigrip brands. aDP’s 3/16″ diameter Ultimate Rivet will spread out over 15% more providing a much improved clamp of the application. These high strength aluminum fasteners have proven to be extremely durable in harsh applications including: mobile billboard sign trucks, trailers, camping trailers, livestock trailers, ATV’s, snowmobiles and numerous off road and industrial applications.
When considering other rivet suppliers, importers or manufacturers. Take notice how they publish the need for accurate application hole sizes. Some even write articles for industry magazines with elaborate descriptions of why rivets fail. They go to great lengths attempting to dismiss their inferior, old technology rivets by casting blame on you, the end user. They do this because their rivets most likely are faulty an will not work right if they are put into applications where the hole size is the thickness of a human hair too big. Yes, the blueprint specifications do spell out accurate hole sizes with little if any tolerance. In fact, for a conventional 3/16″ pop type rivet the application hole size specification is 0.192 to 0.196 inches. That’s a total of 0.004 thousands of an inch which is about the size of a single human hair. Imagine buying rivets from someone other than aDP Rivet and you ask them why their rivets pull through and leave you with a sharp nail sticking out. Then they tell you your application hole size must be a little too big, over-sized, and they won’t refund your money. Now tell me how many of you have drilled a hole perfectly, without any wandering of the while you’re drilling the hole. I’d say very few humans drill perfect holes and more often the result is a slightly oval or over-sized hole. You’ll have none of these problems when using aDP Rivet 1/8″ multigrip rivets. In fact, aDP Rivet stocks a huge selection of 1/8″ multigrip rivets with aluminum or painted colors finish. They will fill oblong holes and they even provide demonstrations of how well their rivets perform in over-sized holes. You can bet there’s too many to count human hairs in an 1/8″, (0.125), and their ultimate multigrip rivets work perfectly. This is one of the few, if only rivet manufacturers you’ll come across who guarantees their ultimate 1/8″ multigrip rivets will never leave an exposed nail sticking out. Just take a look at their thousands of five star customer approval comments via their customer feedback page. With 1/8″ multigrip rivets commonly purchased and used we’re sure you’ll find plenty of 100% customer approvals on their site. Painted blind rivets are especially pleasing when considering how well they blend into the application appearance.
