Speed Fastening® for plastic assembly requirements.

The Avdel® Rivscrew® PL is a Speed Fastening® solution for plastic assembly requirements.

Designed specifically for plastic assembly, the Rivscrew® PL fasteners are threaded, removable fasteners that combine the speed of rivet placement with the benefits of being able to remove and re-fasten. The rivets can be installed up to six times faster than screw and nut assemblies. The Rivscrew® PL rivet can be removed with a standard hexagonal key up to five times with very little reduction in performance.
