Dome head rivets, otherwise known as open-end rivets, are mainly used in applications with no access to the workpiece's rear (blindside). Open-end rivets are the most common type of blind rivets.
Blind rivets, also called "POP Rivets" after the brand that popularized them, have a two-piece construction; the rivet hat and the mandrel. Both the hat and mandrel are pre-assembled and ready to use. They are installed using a riveting tool to draw the mandrel, which causes the body to deform and clamp down on the workpieces, bringing them together. Upon reaching the designed clamping force, the mandrel snaps and is discarded. Once the mandrel is removed from the rivet's mandrel side, the domed head will be left exposed.
Rivets are measured in installed grip range and length. The Rivet size guide above can assist you in finding the right size rivets for your application. For more information on rivet sizing and blind rivets in general, visit our Fasteners 101 page on the subject: Blind Rivets.

A special treatment applied to the rivet insures the mandrel will be encased by the rivet during application. These rivets ensure the quick joining of two materials while leaving behind a clean professional finish.
