I would not skip the glue, especially if you're installing on ceiling - For walls, you probably won't need the rivets - make sure you use a panel roller to roll the panel & stick the glue -
I think you can punch the center thru to remove body -
Can you punch the shaft through to remove the rivet?
Hi Rwl, The head is 1/2 inch wide. Thanks, Stabilit America
Hi Cook Products, No, all of our products are for interior use only. They do not have a UV treating, so if exposed to direct sunlight over time, they will yellow and decompose. Thanks, -Stabilit America
We used a Hammer to nail them in the wall after we drill holes in the block wall
You may have received false information as these do come in white, grey and almond to match the colors of the FRP that Home Depot sells, but not black. The alternate colors for these are even shown on the website, but perhaps not available back in 2015 when you first asked.
Almost 2 years too late, but no rivet tool required. The nail head on these 'rivets' are hit flush to the button head after they are inserted in to the drilled hole. That will make the ribbed part expand in the drywall/brick/whatever in the same manner as a plastic anchor would. I've not used these for FRP but I have used the metal version to mount key cabinets, electrical boxes and other stuff to brick and concrete. I think the rib is 3/4" long, but the diameter isn't listed from what I see.
the pilot hole size is 1/4" Dia or .250
