1/4" Case Wall Rivet - May be used in conjunction with parts and extrusions associated with the construction of cases with 1/4" walls.
May be installed with pneumatic rivet gun or manual hand rivet tool.
Rivet Quantity Rule of Thumb Information:
- an average case with extrusions, 2 latches, 2 handles, 8 corners & 8 corner braces requires at least 200 rivets. If you are unsure, simply add up how many mounting holes for all of your parts. As far as extrusions go, the rule of thumb is approximately 16 rivets per stick of corner extrusion based on spacing the rivets 8 - 10 inches apart, and approximately 8 rivets per stick of Hybrid Tongue & Groove in miscellaneous locations, based on latch placement and case dimensions.
- purchase 1/2 as many backing washers as rivets.

The right rivet for the job
Save yourself the time. Use these for 99% of the riveting. I did bet a small pack of 3/16 x 1/2"L to use on some spots with a lot of layers and when I used washers. But it is not required.
Much cheaper in price than I've been able to find in local hardware stores.
