Sherex RIV-FLOAT® Rivet Nuts for Off Center Applications

Ensure easy, accurate, and fast attachment of components in off center applications

The internally floating threads on RIV-FLOAT® Rivet Nuts allow for component attachments in off center applications and can accommodate for tolerance stack up in the manufacturing process.  The floating nut (.020" radial float) aligns to drive the angle of the screw virtually eliminating cross threading and spin-out. RIV-FLOAT® was designed for installation post finish in applications where cage nuts, floating nut plates or weld nuts are typically used. RIV-FLOAT® is installed with the new Hydro-Pneumatic FLEX-5 Tool.
