Split Rivets, sometimes called Bifurcated Rivets, are usually used to clamp together textiles or leather goods, and consist of a cylindrical shaft with a large head and a deep split on the tail end of the shaft. Depending on the materials being joined together, the split rivet may be able to punch is way through without requiring a pre-drilled hole. On installation, the rivet is hammered against an anvil which splits the two ends of the tail apart, tightening the joint.
Split Rivets Diameters
Split Rivets are available on the FCH Network with Imperial/US diameters that range from #7 to 3/8 The length of Split Rivets is usually measured from the point to the underside of the head.
