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!
I love the rubberized silicone sealant around the rivet head on these! It forms a perfect seal on pad eyes with tapered holes. These rivets pop easy and break clean. Cosmetically, they leave aluminum colored center around black anodized head (if you care).
pop rivets black anodized: The rivets are 3/16" but the mandrel (stem) is slightly smaller than regular 3/16" aluminum rivets. You may have to use on size smaller rivet gun tip. Also noted the mandrel has a tendency to get hung up inside rivet gun.
