What Tools are Needed to Install Rivets? (Click here for text version.)
Rivets are no-sew fasteners which hold layers of material together permanently. Unlike snaps, they don't open or close, instead functioning like a staple. Not only do they provide a professional and decorative look, rivets are able to penetrate through very thick layers that would be difficult to stitch with a sewing machine. Rivets also save time because they eliminate the need for sewing.
