Metric versions meet U.S. and European standards, apply in seconds, and can replace standard rivet nut plates. They feature a retainer that does not require flaring to meet NASM25027 torque-out and push-out requirements. This eliminates the need for two additional rivet holes, as well as reaming, counterboring, and countersinking.
