Ordinarily, when assembling a project with T-nuts, it's all too easy to push the T-nut out the back of the workpiece once the bolt is inserted, sometimes resulting in the prongs stripping out the wood. The Riveting T-Nut system prevents this problem by permanently securing the T-nut to the panel with the Riveter Insertion Tool. Simply set the T-nut first with a hammer, then thread the insertion tool into it with a power drill. The tool folds over the end of the T-nut, creating a neat, clean mushroomed end that holds the T-nut firmly in place.
- T-nut for 3/4" material.
- T-nuts sold in packs of 10.
- To prevent the T-nut from backing out and spinning, it should be firmly set with a hammer before riveting.
- Apply firm downward pressure on the workpiece while riveting, and use a backup such as a workbench top to help ensure that the T-nut does not back out.
