Questions & Answers

show how does this works
Asked by: purse
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.

Economy Rivet Tool is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 44.

I have used Arrow products for a very long time, always liked them and lasted and worked a long time...... The quality on this Riveter is good, but the design is not.... I read the other reviews but needed it in a pinch, could have got the next step up for more money, but did not.... The problem with this riveter is the tip design, it does not allow you to rivet in recessed places as the tips are large and not necked down to the top of the rivet like all the other rivet tools I have used, even the HF Riveter has necked down tips to get into recesses and not so flat surfaces.... This Riveter works on perfectly flat surfaces with alot of room around the tip.... If the tip is not flat against the rivet it will break the rivet stem, or the rivet will not sit flush on your project if it is even slightly recessed what you are trin to rivet... Again the tips are to large for any work that is not perfectly flat and open..... I will be returning this riveter as I need something a little more forgiving like all the other styles in the past I have used with necked down tips that are the size of the rivet head.........

I thought I could get away with it since I only needed to do a handful of rivets (connecting downspouts) and because it was the only one in stock at Home Depot. Sadly, it can not do even 1 rivet. It doesn't break it off. Here's where customer service tells me that perhaps I have the rivet inserted backwards or have the wrong size nozzle for the rivet size or haven't pressed the tip of the tool flush with the downspout. Nonsense! Rivets are same size as the nozzle head (1/8") and only fit in one way. I think if anything, it's possible that the jaws of the tool were assembled backwards (they don't seem to be closing as the tool is closed) but why should I have to disassemble and fix the mistakes of your poor quality control ?! I'm taking it back to HD!

The rivet, 3/16", 1/4" grip, combined with the tool would not allow mandrels to break off as they should! Needed it once (purchased for a specific screen door hinge repair task) in the two weeks owned. Disappointing compared to my nearly 50 year-old USM pop rivet tool!

I only need to install 3 rivets, and Sales Associate recommended this model to use. It is definitely "Economy" but the other models that were available didn't look that much better quality-wise.
