Plastic drive rivet fasteners operate by pushing the stem of the fastener through a hole in a panel or other surface. The rivet is then secured by pushing or screwing the pin through the centre of the rivet causing the sides to expand. One advantage of this type of fastener is that it can be fitted blind from one side of the panel. They generally offer a more secure fixing than a fir tree or w-button fastener.

An alternative method of fixing offered by some products in this range is by a two part assembly that snaps or ratchets together.

Many of our designs are easily removable and reusable.

Typically, plastic panel fasteners are used in light duty applications in the automotive, industrial and furniture industries. These products have been widely used for attaching or joining two panels together, securing trims and upholstery to steel or wood panels, and fixing signs or other lightweight objects.
