Rivets create permanent connections between two or more materials by inserting through them and clamping the materials together from the front and back. Blind rivets are inserted through the exposed side of a blind hole to create a joint. Solid rivets are inserted through the backside of a hole and are pressed until their shanks deform, clamping the materials together. Tubular rivets have hollow shafts that are easier to install than solid rivets. Push-in rivets push into holes from the exposed side to hold two items together. Drive-pin rivets are installed through the materials being combined and expand on the interior surface when installed

Anchors serve as reliable points of attachment for securing items or equipment to mounting surfaces. Specifically designed for concrete, block, and brick, these anchors seamlessly integrate into masonry surfaces, providing a threaded anchoring point for the secure installation of various items.
Wedge anchors excel in establishing secure mounting points within concrete and masonry surfaces. By expanding within a pre-drilled hole and wedging themselves firmly in place, these anchors create a robust connection that strengthens when subjected to upward pulling forces. Their application extends to securing heavy-duty equipment such as pallet racking, light pole baseplates, ladders, and other high-load scenarios.
Sleeve anchors, on the other hand, are tailored for installation into brick or block surfaces, offering a dependable anchoring solution. Featuring an exposed male- or female-threaded end with a sleeve and expansion cone at the bottom, these anchors achieve stability through the outer sleeve expanding and locking into place during tightening. While sleeve anchors may have slightly less holding power compared to wedge anchors, they are better suited for mounting on more delicate surfaces.

Pin fasteners, or fastening pins, are non-threaded fasteners used to align and connect components in industrial machines, vehicles, electronics, architecture, and many other applications. Pin fasteners pre-date threaded fasteners like screws and bolts by many centuries as the technology to efficiently create screw threads developed much later.
Cotter pins, wire-formed split pins, play a crucial role in securing clevis pins, shafts, and various components. Featuring a teardrop-shaped head and two asymmetrical tines for easy separation, these pins are inserted through a through-hole and bent to firmly secure the associated component.
Spring Pins, also known as Roll Pins, are headless, hollow pins with a longitudinal slit. These pins, with chamfered ends and a diameter slightly larger than the assembly hole, maintain their position through predetermined spring tension. This economic choice simplifies product design by substituting more costly fasteners like taper pins, set screws, and straight pins.
Dowel pins, or straight pins, are cylindrical rods designed to position or align components. With chamfered ends facilitating insertion, two dowel pins placed at precise distances on mating parts achieve alignment in numerous applications. Dowel pins often replace screws or bolts in scenarios demanding swift part removal and installation.
Taper pins, akin to dowel pins, feature a tapered design along their length, with one end having a larger diameter. Functioning as precise positioning pins, taper pins enable highly accurate reseating after disassembly, contributing to their utility in various applications.

Threaded rods and studs serve as cylindrical fasteners designed for the mounting, bracing, and reinforcement of components. They are frequently utilized to connect parts that necessitate extended reach or lengths and can be customized to the required size using tools such as a saw, grinder, or similar equipment. These fasteners are available in various conventional thread sizes. Fully-threaded rods and studs feature threads that run the entire length, allowing for extended engagement with nuts and other threaded components.
