How to Install Blind Rivets

    • 1). Put on your safety glasses.

    • 2). Install the drill bit that matches the diameter of the blind rivet into the chuck of the 3/8-inch drill motor. For example, if you are installing 1/8 inch diameter blind rivets, you would need to install either a 1/8-inch drill bit or a 9/64-inch drill bit into the drill motor. Increasing the size of the drill bit by 1/64 inch will allow you to install the rivet easier and still allow the rivet to connect the pieces of material. Drill through the materials to be riveted.

    • 3). Slide the mandrel rod of the blind rivet into the opening of the rivet gun.

    • 4). Push the body of the blind rivet into the hole you drilled through the material in Step 2.

    • 5). Pull the handles of the rivet gun together, release the handles and repeat until the mandrel "pops" free from the body of the blind rivet.

    • 6). Release the handles of the rivet gun and tilt the backside of the rivet gun toward the ground to release the mandrel from the rivet gun.
