Reduced countersunk (thin sheet) rivet nuts with a knurled body and open end are also commonly know as Rivnuts, Blind Nuts, Thin Sheet Nuts and Nutserts.
These rivet nut fasteners are a form of internally threaded insert and are used in applications where the material (wall) thickness is too small to tap a conventional thread, therefore by using rivet nuts a strong thread is created in thin sheets of material for high strength fastening from bolts and other threaded articles.
The open end style rivet nut allows the stud or male threaded component to thread through the rivet nut without limiting the length or protrusion of the male threaded part.
The knurled body of the reduced countersunk rivet nut provides increased resistance to turning in the application, especially when installed in softer materials.
The reduced countersunk head also known as thin sheet rivet nuts allows this type of rivet nut to be used in applications without any extra hole preperation, providing a low profile flush fit to the application. Enabling reduced countersunk rivet nuts to be installed in post-painted or pre-coated applications without damaging the surface.
