Due to the large bulbed blind head, similar to a solid rivet, the Cherrylock and CherryMax rivets are especially suited for double dimpled or high vibration applications. They can be used as replacements for some solid rivets and are excellent for use in fiberglass or composites as the rivet spreads in a way that prevents crazing or cracking of the material.

NOTE: CR3212 and CR3213 are nominal diameters. CR3242 and CR3243 are oversized diameters and measure 1/64" more than listed diameter. SUBJECT TO PRICE AND AVAILABILITY OF CHERRY BRAND RIVETS. EQUIVALENT RIVETS MAY BE FURNISHED.

They are expensive but they are structural and they work every time.

These hold like solid rivets but install just a blind rivet. A little pricey but well worth the cost

Cherry max rivets are the gold standard for blind rivet applications. They pull tight and hold tight, leave a nice flush finish. I use the micro stop counter sink which is easy to use and very reasonably priced.
