With our binder rivets, you can make your own binders and so much more! They work perfectly with our ring binder mechanisms and rivet setting tool. Simple to use, just place the rivet through the back of your cover and mechanism, so the open end is on the inside of your mechanism. Then place the rivet setter tool onto the open end on the inside, and hit it hard with a hammer; if possible, in one, swift blow. The impact turns the rivet post in on itself, securing it to the mechanism firmly.
To choose a rivet for ring binders, first determine what the ring size is of the mechanism you are using. Note whether it is larger than 1 ½". Now place the mechanism on top of your intended cover. This cover should include the chipboard (or other pre-punched rigid material you are using) as well as any fabric or paper that is wrapped around it. Measure the thickness of the assembled piece at the hole, which includes the entire cover and the mechanism base itself. If the ring size of your mechanism is 1 ½" or smaller, then add 1/4" (4/16") to that measurement to determine the recommended rivet size. If the ring size of your mechanism is larger than 1 ½", then add 3/8" (6/16") to the measurement. Listed on our website are the two most popular sizes, 7/16" and 9/16". In addition, we also offer several more sizes from as small as 3/16" up to 10/16", available by request when you call us at (866) 537-2244.
You can buy binder rivets online at Binding101 in several sizes and colors, including traditional silver, black, or white. The silver and black rivets are a solid color all the way through, while the white rivets have a white painted head, but a silver post. Since the post is hidden once bound, white is the only color you see. Every color and size is packaged into bags of 100. Since most binder mechanisms need two rivets for each piece, this means you can bind up to 50 binders with one bag of rivets.
