Each tool has the same body size, thereby requiring only one 11/16” ratchet and one 7/8” wrench to install all sizes and styles of rivet nuts. This tool uses a standard socket head cap screw as a mandrel, making replacement convenient and economical.
These expendable tools are ideal for field repairs or consumer installation of AVK's products. Thread the AVK fastener onto the tool mandrel all the way up. Hold the tool with a box wrench and turn the mandrel with another box wrench or ratchet wrench until the AVK fastener is installed.
