SBS43 Steel Blind Rivets with a 1/8″ rivet body diameter and low profile dome 1/4″ head diameter. These SBS43 steel blind rivets are designed to be inserted into applications with a hole size between 0.128 to 0.133 inches. You can achieve this somewhat critical hole size by using a #30 drill bit and drilling a straight hole. When using blind rivets it is recommended the application hole size be as accurate as possible so the rivet can perform to it’s design intent. If the hole is over-sized or oblong there is a possibility the rivets pulling mandrel head will not meet enough resistance to create the “pop” noise when it breaks at it’s predetermined location. If your application’s hole sizes are over-sized or oblong you may be able to solve this by using rivet back-up washers, which have the correct hole size. In order to use a back-up washer you must have access to the back or blind side of the application in order to slip the washer over the exposed rivet.
