blind rivet

A special rivet used in sheet metal that can be installed when there is access from only one side of the sheet. These rivets are hollow and need to be plugged after setting if sealing is required.
Pulling the mandrel through the rivet expands the rivet to set it. The mandrel breaks off to leave a neat fastener.
