Some Helpful Info About Rivets at Fastener Superstore
January 29, 2020
Grip Range is an important factor in identifying what rivet you need.
Grip range tells you the range of combined thicknesses that a rivet can hold together. If you are riveting two items together which are both .09" thick, then you need a rivet with a grip range that covers .18" thickness. One with a grip range of .06" - .25" would work since .18" falls within the grip range of that rivet.
