Are you looking for rivetnut tools? There are several online shops that stock these kinds of tools as an inexpensive alternative to the industrial rivet nut setters. You can also get Gage bilt tools and Huck tools online. However, a handy man generally uses rivet nut tools to install rivet nut fasteners. They make the installation process easy for you. The design of these devices enables the rivetnuts to be seated tighter in comparison to the other conventional tools available in the market. Usually a rivet nut is heavier than any other kind of metal screw and so these tools are always recommended for the installation.

Ehere are even several other applications where these fastener installation devices can be used. They can be used in workshops, households, boats, cars, automobiles and in many more areas. These fastener installation instruments are also popular as Rivet Tools, Rivet Guns and Rivet Pop Tools in the industry. But before you proceed with the installation of the rivet nuts you need to know first the installation procedure of the rivetnut tools. Installing this kind of tool is not that difficult as it seems. You can install a rivet nut in few minutes by following the below mentioned steps. The materials needed in this process are grease, socket set, rivet nut, adjustable wrench, ratchet driven tool and  inch drive ratchet.

The first thing that you need to do is inspect the fastener installation instruments and threads of mendrel. Check out whether all the instruments are in their place or not. Next, if the tool hasn't been assembled, start assembling. But if the assembly is already done, thread the nut in the mandrel. For doing this, the rivet should be turned clockwise until the nut's head sits tightly against the bottom of the tool that holds the nut. Then, place the right size socket onto the ratchet. After all these things, slide the nut in the hole of the metal you are working with.

Ensure that the nut you have taken fits the hole properly. Place it into the hole, hold it and make use of an adjustable wrench to fit it. Take the socket and put it on drawing nut. Then turn the ratchet clockwise. While doing this, also put counter-clockwise pressure to the wrench holding that in place. Keep on turning it until the nut gets locked and securely screwed in the metal. After turning the nut, reverse the direction of the nut to remove pressure from mandrel. Finally, don't forget to insert the bolt into the nut and tighten it.
