Marine grade black anodized pop rivet. Sold individually. Note: This style of rivet is not designed to break when it is pulled vertically. Depending on your rivet gun, 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 pulls will set the rivet properly. Once the rivet is set, remove the rivet gun and tap the stem laterally (to the side) and it will snap off clean. It is a good idea to practice on some scrap material to get the proper feel.

Jerry Lester: The rivets with little rings on the stem like these are star rivets made for Ocean Kayaks. If you have the proper size rivet holder on your gun they work perfectly. The smoothe stem rivets (with no rings on the stem) often require you putting a small washer on the underside of the rivet before you pop the rivet to keep the rivet from ever pulling through. The second type of rivet(smoothe stem)are very common on many other kayak brands.
They work but the price seems too high!
These pop rivets worked like a charm for what I needed to do...and the price was right. I did have an issue with the delivery of my package but that was taken care of by the order being re-sent immediately along with a small bonus for the issue...and the issue was not ACK's.....great product....great customer service....many thanks.
I used these rivets when replacing broken hardware on my kayak. They worked great using a standard rivet gun and had sealant on the head to make a leakproof repair.
