Total price: $0.00

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-nuts available for 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" material (sold separately).

Caution
The mushroom flange comes loose from the stud when removing the tool from the installed T-nut. Not a big problem, but gives a false sense of tight when using on next T-nut.

Works just like it should.
I'm an Engineer, and almost always can think of something I would change with most tools. After a year I can't hink of anything I would change.

Worked Perfect
After reading the previous reviews, I was skeptical about this tool and T-Nut set-up. I decided to go forward and try it for myself.

I started by checking the threads in the T-Nuts and they were just fine, allowing for free movement. I then drilled a hole in the wood for the T-Nut on a test piece of wood. I attempted to 'seat' the teeth of the T-Nut by using the tool and quickly found out that is not the right way to do it.

I continued by 'seating' the T-Nut with a hammer then using the drill and tool to rivet the T-Nut in place. After some practice, I found that using the clutch on my cordless drill, I could get a perfect rivet every time without over screwing the T-Nut.

T-nut system
Works good. If you have an application where you take something apart a lot, this is a good answer. Keeps the T-nut from falling out.

It looks intriguing. How long will it hold up? T-nuts are another way for wood to be closed and done so neatly

We just started a 1.800 Bunk Bed business and riveting the t-nuts to the storage drawers increases the quality of workmanship and quality of our family's efforts.

Does this tool fit all sizes of T nuts, or do you need one for each size?
Edmund R on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This part fits the riveting t-nuts. They have a 1/4"-20 thread and the t-nuts all have this size thread, the only difference is the depth of the t-nuts (1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" depth)
Metric versions of the riveting t-nuts available?
Rune O on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It seems Rockler does not know if they sell a metric version of this tool, so they are asking customers to answer the question for them. NO, ROCKLER DOES NOT SELL A METRIC VERSION OF THIS TOOL OR THE T-NUTS THIS TOOL USES.
Can this be used to rivet any old t-nut or just the special ones?
Kevin h on Jun 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This tool can only be used with the special T-Nuts.
