RIVKLE® – Blind rivet nuts and studs

Fastening technology for sheet metals and plastic materials

RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and studs are the most versatile solution for fastening high-strength nut or bolt threads to components when tapped threads are not possible due to small wall thicknesses.

For internal and external threads of components with small wall thicknesses, Böllhoff offers RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and studs. These elements are mounted without counter pressure (“blindly”) and can therefore also be set at hollow sections.
RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and studs are available in many variations and sizes and therefore offer numerous fastening solutions with additional functions.


RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and studs can easily be used in metal or plastic components as well as in many other material combinations.
Often for hollow bodies, profiles, housings or components with one-sided accessibility, the economical setting of the blind rivet nut and stud is the only possible solution.

RIVKLE-Technology 1

  • Stable thread on thin-walled components
  • Installation in case of one-sided accessibility (blind assembly)
  • 2 functions (riveting and screwing)
  • Flexible application for every production step
  • The workpiece is not exposed to thermal stress.
  • Low capital expenditure

Example of a spindle lifting procedure

Here, the RIVKLE® blind rivet nut and stud is spinned on, upset and afterwards spinned off.

RIVKLE® stainless steel

Apart from steel and aluminium, our assortment also comprises stainless steel blind rivet nuts.
In addition to the well-known advantages of RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts, they provide optimised corrosion and temperature resistance.
RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts of stainless steel are also available with additional lower-head seal (RIVKLE® sealcote).


RIVKLE® plus

With our 20 RIVKLE® plus types, we can cover your demand for steel blind rivet nuts to about 80 %.
All products of the RIVKLE® plus program are available from stock any time.


RIVKLE® sealcote

RIVKLE® sealcote provides a stable thread on thin-walled components, also in case of one-sided accessibility. The specific detail is an additional underhead sealant which seals liquids (saltwater resistant) and gases reliably.
RIVKLE® sealcote is available on all RIVKLE® configurations.


  • One-piece element: seal integral with the fastener
  • Seal applied prior to installation: optimised assembling / logistics
  • Cost savings
  • Resists both high pressure and temperature
  • Available on all RIVKLE® configurations
  • Salt-water resistant
  • A range of 6 references is available on stock
RIVKLE® HRT high-strength blind rivet nuts

RIVKLE® HRT (High Resistance Thread) is available in steel or aluminium. High-strength blind rivet nuts ensure a stable thread which considerably improves the mechanical features of the blind rivet nut.


Benefits compared to RIVKLE® Standard
  • Higher preload-forces in the joint
  • Use of smaller dimensions possible
  • Reduced weight
  • Corrosion resistance (RIVKLE® HRT made of aluminium)
  • Optimised recycling capabilities (RIVKLE® HRT made of aluminium)
RIVKLE® PN blind rivet nuts with slotted shank

RIVKLE® PN has been specially designed for integration into plastic parts, hollow sections or sheet metals requiring high ultimate thread strengths. The slotted shank splays out into four “petals” on the blind side of the base material providing a large bearing surface and maximum ultimate thread strength.


Benefits compared to RIVKLE® Standard
  • High ultimate thread strengths
  • Large clamp area
  • Great variation of component thicknesses with a blind rivet nut
  • Low radial tensions within the component
RIVKLE® blind rivet studs

RIVKLE_blind rivet studs

  • Easy and blind assembly (one-sided accessibility)
  • Use in thin-walled components
  • Optimum fastening for mixed and lightweight construction methods
  • Fulfils two functions: screwing and rivting
