The Arrow POP Riveter - with Optional Pop Rivets and Deck Loops from Watersports Warehouse provides a standard sized riveter that will let you install water-sealing rivets on your kayak, canoe or other boat. If you are an avid kayaker and don't have a rivet gun, eventually you may need one. If your kayak does not have the appropriate pad eyes (deck loops / grommets) for attaching the now standard brass clips at the end of the front and rear attachment straps standard on nearly all kayak seats today, you may need to install your own, and having your own rivet gun makes it easy. Spring loaded for easy loading, this gun has an extended nose to reach into difficult places. Made from durable steel with a non-slip vinyl hand grip.
Options: To add pop rivets, deck loops (pad eyes) or screws to your order, choose from a variety of options. These deck loops are made of injection molded nylon to make them stronger than acetal plastic deck loops. Affix them to your boat using industry standard structural tri-locking water-sealing rivets with a black anodized finish, now improved with a new countersunk foam membrane. You can also add some small diameter, stainless steal pan head machine screws to your order as an alternative way of affixing your deck loops (rivet gun not required).
Note: If you add pop rivets to your order, you should know that these rivets are designed with a grip thickness range of .375" to .562". Roto-molded kayaks are about .200" thick, so the part you are riveting must be between .175" and .362" thickness. If the part is too thin, the mandrel will not break off flush. If the part is too thick, the rivet will not grip.
