Q:show how does this works

Answer This Question

A:  How does it work? It uses pop rivets. You put the business end of the rivet in the hole, the other end goes into the long barrel of the rivet gun. Then you squeeze the handles together, which pulls a ferrule thru the rivet until the stem breaks off. Viola! The rivet is set. Move on to the next one.

A:  This particular tool does NOT work! The way it is suppose to work is: 1. drill a small hole through the two pieces (e.g., gutter downspouts) to be joined. 2. insert rivet into tool 3. hold tool and insert into the hole you drilled, making the rivet to into the hole and keeping the tool flush with the work surface. 4. squeeze the handle - this pulls the excess length of the rivet through, expands the rivet so it fills up the hole, and then cuts off the excess. Or at least it's supposed to. The tool I bought does not manage to cut off the excess.

    A:  It doesn't, it will fail on you. I bought 2 of the tools and one never worked and the other failed on the 3rd rivet. The 2 rivets I managed to do did not break off where they were supposed to either.

      A:  Hello, there. We do not currently have a video of this tool in use but will take your feedback into account as we continue to develop content. To use the RT100M, screw in the appropriate nosepiece that corresponds with the rivet size, place the long, thin part of the rivet into the nosepiece, insert the rivet into a pre-drilled hole, and squeeze the handles together until the mandrel snaps off. Then make sure the handles are fully open so the mandrel will release from the tool's jaws. If you have any more questions about this tool or how to use it, feel free to connect with us directly on social media, by email at customercare@arrowfastener.com or by phone at 800-776-2228. -Your Arrow Fastener team

        A:  Put the skinny end in the nozzle. Put the bigger end where the rivet is to be installed. Squeeze the handle until it bonds the pieces together and cuts the excess off

          Complete and total useless trash
          After a whopping 15-20 uses over the course of a work week, it managed to get a rivet stem stuck inside, rendering the tool completely unusable. Do not, I repeat, do not go for this one. Save up and get something a little sturdier. (Chipped paint is from a pair of pliers, then a hammer, trying to remove the stem. It was in flawless condition when the rivet got stuck inside)

            Performed poorly
            Does a poor job of gripping the rivet. Leaves a long stem sticking out once it breaks/cuts the shank. Don’t waist your time or your money

            Hello - We're sorry to hear that your rivet tool isn't working well for you Please take a look at this rivet guide, which contains operating instructions and troubleshooting tips: https://bit.ly/3Kwasus. Make sure you're using the correct rivet size and that you drill a pilot hole before inserting the rivet. - Your Arrow Fastener Team Arrow
              Get a better tool. I've used many rivet tools....
              Get a better tool. I've used many rivet tools. This one set the rivets, but it broke off 75% of the spikes inside the tool, instead of inside the rivet - See image. Workaround is to break spikes off by bending back & forth with pliers, then file down sharp ends. I plan to return it.

              Hello - We're sorry to hear that your rivet tool isn't working for you. If the rivet mandrel does not eject out of the back of the rivet tool, you may need to grease or lightly oil the tapered face of the jaws by removing the nosepiece and opening the handles completely. Avoid getting grease on the serration of jaws. If this doesn't help with correctly ejecting the mandrels, you may have purchased a defective tool, which we can replace under the warranty. Please contact us at customercare@arrowfastener.com or 800-776-2228. -Your Arrow Fastener Team Arrow

              Works poorly
              to use this tool, you need a hammer, pliers , and file . I lean this after 4 rivets. Rivets will get jam in jaws, then you have to bend the rivets back and forth to snap the end off and then file the head smooth. HD was great took it back after i had rip open the package. waste
