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® 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.
