A US manufacturer has enhanced the performance of their 1/8″ and 3/16″ diameter Multi-grip rivets. Also referred to as “vari-grip rivets” or “wide grip rivets”. This manufacturers rivets offer many advantages over conventional, and other brands of rivets. First, wide grip rivets have a broader grip, or working range, which should replace at least two conventional open end blind rivets. The aDP Rivet brand, Ultimate (multi-grip) Rivets, can replace up to six conventional rivet sizes. Second, Multi-grip rivets have a little more tolerance when it comes to application hole size. Multi-grip 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 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 the world turns, all things are not created or manufactured equally. This American manufacturer has greatly improved the performance characteristics and now calls their wide grip rivets, “Ultimate Multigrip Rivets”. They also offer customer reviews of their products via an independent rating system. With over 3000 customer comments logged, aDP Rivet continues it’s 100% approval rating.

With aDP Rivets broadening of the product line, it has lead to a new family of American manufactured Multi Grip rivets.

When considering other rivet suppliers, importers or manufacturers, will 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 are defective and will not work cirrectly 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 wide grip rivets. In fact, aDP Rivet stocks a huge selection of wide grip rivets painted colors will fill oblong holes and they even provide demonstrations of how well their rivets perform in 1/8″ 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 multigrip painted blind 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 painted blind 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.
