Description

Sailrite® SnapRite® Surface Mount Stud Die is a uniquely designed die that screws into the end of a standard rivet tool to quickly install stud fasteners to a hard surface. The die holds the rivet and stud in place so parts are not loose or falling off during installation, and the installation results in a tight fitting stud!

The SnapRite Surface Mount Stud Die offers a better alternative to screw-in studs with a quicker installation process and a lower stud profile. Use to install studs to fiberglass, stainless steel or aluminum tubing, steel frame, galvanized pipe, and other hard materials that can be riveted.

How to Use:

  • Screw die into rivet tool.
  • Insert blind rivet (see rivet specifications).
  • Press stud into place inside die.
  • Rivet stud to surface using pre-drilled 1/8" hole.

Use with aluminum or stainless steel blind rivets (aka pop rivets or open end rivets). The length of the rivet must be able to accommodate the thickness of the surface. Using an open end rivet will not create a watertight seal.

When a watertight seal is necessary, use a sealing rivet (closed end rivet) to seal off the hole in the center of the stud. For extra waterproof protection, use a closed end rivet with a watertight gasket and an adhesive backed foam rubber gasket on the surface. The closed end rivet seals the hole in the center of the snap while the foam rubber gasket seals the stud base.

The SnapRite Surface Mount Stud Die is proudly made in the USA.

Note: This die is designed and tested for use with the Blind Rivet for SnapRite®, available through Sailrite, and DOT® studs. Other rivets and studs may not work as well with the SnapRite® Surface Mount Stud Die.

A real game-changer

Outstanding product—a rivet gun nosepiece that makes installing snap studs so easy and foolproof. *Without* this specialized nose piece we had our rivet gun jump on the first try and leave a gouge in the surface of our Airstream trailer. So glad to have found this product at SailRite, which makes a secure connection between gun and snap stud. So glad also to have found the two *excellent* instructional videos at SailRite showing how to use the SnapRite stud die, and instructing us on different rivet types, as well as the availability of foam rubber gaskets to increase resistance to leaks. Highly recommend.
