Q-Lok Blind RivetsThe Avdel Q Rivet is a structural blind rivet with an internal interference lock and a weatherproof seal. The Interference lock is formed by a splined mandrel that plugs the entire length of the body, providing powerful locking strength and a strong, vibration resistant joint. The rivet is any-rattle and weatherproof making it ideal for: Automotive Warehouse racking Ladders Building industries Commercial vehicles Domestic appliances Heating and ventilation.

For ultimate performance the Avdel Q Rivet relies on a friction lock in the body and a uniquely designed mandrel head. The internal friction lock occurs when locking grooves on the mandrel slide along the inner wall of the rivet body during installation. The locking grooves scrape material from the rivet wall and the loose material accumulates in the grooves. This helps to lock the mandrel in place once the rivet is installed.

Huck BOM FastenersHuck BOM® (Blind, Oversize, Mechanically locked) Fasteners from Alcoa Fastening Systems are so strong, one can do the work of up to four ordinary fasteners. You won’t find a more vibration resistant blind bolt, or one that works harder in so many different applications. With its unique push-and-pull installation design, the BOM fastening system is tough enough for military vehicles and equipment, auto suspensions, amusement park rides, rail car assembly, and automatic storage and retrieval racks. Even the most demanding high-tensile application is no match for the strength of the BOM fastening system. Because installing BOM fasteners is so easy, a worker can learn the installation procedure in just minutes, eliminating the need to hire certified welders or specially trained employees. And, because they install from just one side, your labor costs are reduced. Installations are more accurate than other fasteners of the same kind, because the element of human error is not an issue. In other words, correct installation doesn’t depend on operator skill or specialized tools. Plus, chances are you can start using BOM fasteners immediately with your current tools, saving you more money in the long run. What’s more, inspections are quick and easy. Once properly installed, there’s no need for torque inspections or x-rays, no matter if the inspection is the next day or 10 years from now. If the pin has installed near flush with the collar, then you know it’s right. Alcoa Fastening Systems use quiet, non-impact tools for lower noise in the plant. And health risks are reduced because operator muscles and joints are not subjected to the constant impact of power tools. In addition, BOM installation eliminates the hot, noxious vapor filled air of the typical welding environment, ensuring you comply with the most current OSHA standards.
