Riv-Nail™ Rivets

Riv-Nails from Conveyor Accessories.

Rivets, or Riv-Nails, are an assembly of a rivet and a pilot nail. The rivet is a specially designed and semi-tubular rivet sized to fit a range of conveyor belt thicknesses. The rivet is “up-set” by the upper head of the pilot nail to clinch and maintain compression of the upper and lower plates of the belt fastener. The pilot nail has a point that is used to guide through the belt and into the anvil setting tool. Upon completion of the belt splice, the rivet and the pilot nail separate. All rivets are available with guide washers.

An example of a part number would be RNBW-2M. The “W” indentifying that washers are installed.
