Welcome To Our Rivnut Tools Collection

Rivnut tools, also known as nutsert tools or rivet nut tools, are used to install rivnuts, rivet nuts or nutserts. At RivetLab, we stock various Rivnut tools that cater to different needs.

For those on a tight budget, we have the single-sized FAR KJ15 hand nutsert tool. Professionals can opt for the POP® PNT110 or the Gesipa® GBM10 hand nutsert tool kit, both renowned for their quality and suitable for on-site or low production use. Our top-selling RivetLab RT-512 kit excels in effortlessly installing rivet nuts up to M12 in all materials, making it an ideal choice even for volume installers who prefer manual tools.

In addition to manual options, we stock the Gesipa® range of cordless nutsert guns and spare parts. These battery-powered tools, made in Germany, offer excellent flexibility for on-site production. Among them, the stroke version of the Gesipa Firebird Pro Gold stands out as the only cordless nutsert gun capable of installing M12 stainless steel nutserts.

For heavy-duty tasks, our air nutsert guns are the ideal choice. Models like the RivetLab RT-X12-P and the FAR KJ45S utilise pneumatic power, making them perfect for industrial applications.

Can I use a regular rivet gun for rivnuts?

No. Although the installation process of both tools involves a pulling action, a rivet gun has different mechanisms from a rivnut tool. You will need to purchase a suitable rivnut tool to install rivnuts.

How does a rivnut tool work?

The installation steps are as follows:

  • Wind the rivnut onto the thread of a rivnut tool
  • Insert the rivnut into a pre-drilled hole
  • The tool's mandrel engages the threaded part of the rivnut and crimps the rivnut body (the part without thread) with a pulling action until the body grips tightly against the fastened material. 
  • Unwind the rivnut

What are the things to consider when buying a nutsert tool?

Nutsert tools have different setting capacities. The nutserts you are installing should be in the capacity range. (Always use the correct size mandrel and nosepiece of the nutsert tool to install nutserts.) You should also consider whether you need a power or a hand tool, the type of material you’re working with, and most importantly, ease of use and safety.
