What is a Nutsert?

A Nutsert® is a brand name for rivet nuts or threaded rivets and are permanent tubed nuts that you can insert into existing or new holes. Many manufacturers make rivet nuts and often sell their rivet nuts through distributors. A Nutsert® is a one-piece blind fastener that provides a nut plate and requires no post-install finishing. This is not to be confused with the RIVNUT, which is a similar product but is different in how the insert holds onto the material. An added benefit is no thermal damage is done to the parent material once installed.


A rivnut fastener is installed with a hand or power tool. The pull-up of the tool engages the threads of the rivnut fastener and exerts a pull causing the shank to expand tightly against the material being fastened. The rivnut provides a nut plate and requires no finishing.


When materials such as sheet metal, tubular structures, and plastics are too thin to tap, a nutsert provides a thread for the parent material. Once installed, a nutsert offers strong threads to reliably join thin-walled workpieces. This fastener is the ideal money-saving fastener for OEMs!
