Rivets 

For the application of Rivets, use a fly press or a semi-automatic attaching machine: The following instructions focus on the application with the fly press. As a first step, attach the appropriate die to the fly press. Rivets can be applied on various materials with or without Back Parts. Rivet 53 002 and Rivet Flat Shaft 53 003 are specially designed for application without a Back Part.

For applications on leather, Stainless Steel Rivets (color code 088) and Back Parts are recommended.

Please note the material thickness when selecting Rivets. The dies should be selected accordingly.

1 This can vary according to the roughness and production of the carrier material.

2 Rivet Flat Shaft 53 003 is designed for ring rolling application and is self-backing. The Rivet can be applied on either an automatic or semi-automatic machine or with a fly press. For application with fly press, use the lower die art. 9070/010 without Back Part.

It is often possible to select between both versions of the Back Part. For applications on thinner fabrics, it is better to use the larger Back Part (art. 53007). Its size means this Back Part can better hold the split Rivet shaft, avoiding any damage to the crystal.

For multi-layered or thicker materials, the smaller Back Part (art. 53009) can be used. To create a lasting bond, this requires less space for the split Rivet shaft. If the carrier material proves too thick, or is made up of several layers, it is recommended to punch a hole before application.
