Tips for Fastener Selection

  • Aluminum fasteners prevent rust streaks.
  • The diameter of the bolt should be 1/16" smaller than the holes in the sign.
  • See drawing below for length of fastener.

ALUMINUM RIVETS
Vulcan Rivets

Intended primarily as a replacement for nuts and bolts, these two piece rivets offer the following very distinct advantages:

  • Vibration Proof - will not shake loose.
  • Tamper Proof - smooth, low profile heads on both ends.
  • Controlled Clamp-Up - clamps tightly, without crushing.
  • Non Critical Holes - no close tolerance drilling necessary.
  • Labor Saving - installed by one man with a simple squeeze of a hand riveter.
