Aluminum rivet nuts are easy to set, cost effective and light weight. However, they are not structural fasteners and should not be used in load bearing applications. Aluminum rivet nuts are ideal for attaching light non-structural parts in experimental aircraft interiors, recreational vehicles, robotics and more.
When selecting a rivet nut for your application, pay close attention to the grip range. The thickness of the material in which you're installing the rivet nuts should fall inside the grip range.
