Rivet nuts for rivet guns

Easy thread insertion.

Blind rivet nuts are always used when the material can only be accessed from one side, and a thread needs to be inserted in the material. This thread can then be used to attach signs or other things with a screw. For this purpose, there are rivet nuts with internal threads in sizes M4, M5 and M6.
