Hand Held Rivet Gun
A hand operated pop rivet gun is a tool used for fastening two pieces of material together by driving a rivet through the pieces and expanding the end to hold them securely in place. It is commonly used in construction and repair work.
A rivet gun can come in a variety of different sizes and styles. Riveters used to set structural rivets tend to be pneumatic or battery operated while those used for smaller applications can be operated by hand. No matter the project requirements, you need the right tools to get the job done safely and efficiently. We have a range of different configurations depending on what you’re looking for.
Dafra offers a selection of hand held rivet gun kits that are built to be lightweight and portable around any worksite. Each rivet gun tool kit includes several nose pieces to suit various sizes of rivet and thickness of the material you are working with.
Our hand held rivet guns are lightweight, yet sturdy enough to set aluminium, steel, and stainless steel rivets. Get in touch and we can determine the best hand held rivet gun kit for your project.

Hand Pop Rivet Gun
Blind rivets, also known as pop rivets, are a type of fastener that are used to join two pieces of material together. Unlike traditional rivets, blind rivets can be installed from one side of the materials, making them ideal for use in applications where access to the back side is limited.
A hand operated pop rivet tool pulls the mandrel through the body of the rivet and sets it. This creates a strong and reliable join. If you’re looking to buy the best hand pop rivet gun, we have just what you need.
Dafra has a selection of quality pop rivet guns. Their heavy-duty body and comfortable hand grips make them durable and ideal for small production work.
We also stock over one million rivets in a variety of sizes and styles. See our online store and the items we have for sale or reach out to our team and we’ll help you find the right hardware for your project requirements.
Using A Hand Rivet Gun
To use a rivet gun, first select the proper size of rivet for the materials and thickness you are working with. Insert the rivet into the gun and position the gun so that the rivet is aligned with the hole in the materials. Squeeze the trigger of the gun to release the rivet and hold it in place for a few seconds to allow the end to expand and secure the materials together.
Repeat this process for each rivet needed. It is important to always wear safety glasses and to use the correct rivet sizes for the materials you are working with to ensure a secure hold.
If too much pressure is applied to a pop rivet gun, the rivet can be over-compressed, which can cause it to break or deform. The two objects being riveted together can also be damaged if too much pressure is applied.
Over-compression can cause the materials to crack or become distorted, which can weaken the overall strength of the riveted joint. The tool itself can be damaged, which may lead to costly repairs. It's important to always follow the manufacturer's instructions and use the correct pressure and rivet when using a rivet gun.
