Q:

How does a person use a pop rivet gun?

A:

To use a pop rivet gun, put the rivet in in the tip of the rivet gun. Then, position the rivet in a predrilled hole and squeeze the handle.

The rivet gun will make a popping noise when the rivet becomes seated in the hole. The handle will also resist when first beginning to squeeze, followed by a quick release of pressure when the gun pops.

  1. Drill the hole
  2. Use a small drill bit, the size of the rivet's shaft, and drill through both layers being joined.

  3. Insert the rivet
  4. Put the long thin shaft of the rivet in the hole in the rivet gun's tip. Push the thicker shaft end of the rivet into the drilled hole, and then squeeze the handle until the rivet gun pops.
