Exploding Peel Rivets made in USA

Exploding Peel Rivets get their name from the positive customer feedback and their descriptions of how well our rivets perform. When installed, the back or blind side of these rivets “explodes” into four pedals and pulls application layers tightly together while it peels and clamps. The customer feedback identified the top three advantages our exploding peel rivets have over other brands. Here are the key performance enhancements our Exploding Peel Rivets provide: 1) Powerful 1,000 pounds of clamping force to hold your application securely in place. 2) Our rivets begin peeling from the extreme end of the rivet, which provides the extra long grip range, up to 9/16″ thickness. 3)
