A solid rivet has a manufactured head on one end and a solid shank on the other. Solid fasteners offer cheap but efficient alternative in various assembly operations. Their USP lies in their low cost and lightweight feature for industrial operations involving welding and movable joints. Being lightweight, large quantities can be transported over large distance without adding to the overhead production costs.
Choosing the right solid rivet with the suitable head is important. It depends on the usage and the visibility factor. We are stocking various types of heads and sizes in solid rivets. Common head styles are round, countersunk, flat, button, universal, oval, truss, pan etc. Please contact us for any further clarifications.
These are available in Stainless Steel as our default range.

Hammer Drive Rivet Type U
This rivet is formed in one piece and consists of a body having a helical thread, performing a deformation in the support where it is introduced.The visible round head secures relatively thin parts in all support.
U-drive rivets (also known as hammer drive screws or ) are unslotted round head self tapping rivets often used for attaching nameplates in castings and for sealing drain holes in corrosion proofing tubular structures.
They possess multiple start threads with large helical angles and an unthreaded pilot point.
Similar to nails they are driven into mating parts with a mallet or hammer for a quick and permanent assembly. No tapped threads are required in the mating part.
However, the u-drive screw must be of harder material than the
mating part and a undersized pre-drilled pilot hole is required.
The assembly can be done in a blind hole.
Drilling support and drilling piece to be fixed. The assembly is done manually with traditional tools (hammer, mallet or small hand press).
Used a lot for name plate of label fixing on metal bodies. That is why they are also known as name plate rivets.
