Known as rivet nuts or blind threaded rivets there are three main types: SpinTite®, MaxTite®, and Plus+Tite® fasteners.


The SpinTite types are used for most applications where strong threads are required for blind applications. They are installed from one side using a spin/spin technique. In addition to high thread strength and torque-out, these fasteners have minimal inventory requirements since each size can accommodate many grip ranges (material thickness).


The heavy duty MaxTite® types are designed for the most demanding applications. They are installed from one side using a “spin/pull” technique.


The blind Plus+Tite® inserts feature a slotted body that folds into four petals upon installation, gripping the backside of the parent material. These inserts can be installed into single, variable, or multiple thickness materials.
