Some of us have found that using
for softer materials like the plastic, fiberglass and rubber (often used in our homebuilts) is not the best solution. Components like wing tips, caps for the ends of control surfaces and the like are often made up of these non-metal materials. Rivets used for fastening these parts can pull out of the softer materials providing a less than adequate solution.
Watch as we demonstrate a style of rivet that is better suited for these parts. It has a completely different mechanism for gripping the back side and provides a greater surface area that
won't pull through.
