Who is AVK?

What is a blind threaded insert?

A blind threaded rivnut is defined as a fastener with internal or external threads that can be installed into a panel, tube, or other structure from the frontside without needing to see or access the backside to complete the application. Once installed the fastener remains captive, and can be used to attached a mating component using standard hardware.

How is it installed?

AVK can provide you with the right tool to install your parts. Everything from a hand tool, to a standard ARO tool, to SPP(spin pull to pressure), and even tools that collect data, and verify correct installation.
