Sherex RIV-FLOAT® RNHT Kits are great for small jobs or prototyping in applications that have alignment issues. Every kit includes multiple thread sizes of RFL Series (Large Flange) Rivet Nuts & the Rivet Nut Hand Tools
to install the parts.
Rivet Nut Hand Tool instructions can be found on the inside label of each kit.
The internally floating threads on RIV-FLOAT® allow for component attachments in off center applications and can accommodate for tolerance stack up in the manufacturing process. The floating nut (.020” radial float) aligns to drive the angle of the screw virtually eliminating cross threading and spin out. RIV-FLOAT® was designed for post installation in applications where cage nuts, clinch nuts, floating nut plates or weld nuts are typically used.
