Description

This rivet setter tool is used with rivets to mount binder mechanisms to covers to make ring binders. With just this rivet setter, the proper rivets, a hammer, and a hard work surface, you can bind most ring binder mechanisms to your own custom-made covers. Simply slip the rivet through a pre-punched hole in the back of your cover so the flat-end is facing out, place the curved edge of the rivet setting tool against the open end of the rivet on the inside of your cover and mechanism, and then hit the tool with a hammer in one solid, swift motion. This impact turns the rivet opening in on itself, creating a firm bind to the mechanism.

Check out this awesome video by Steve Miller that walks you through how to attach a ring binder mechanism to a cover to make your own ring binders. While you watch, keep these important points in mind.

• Pre-punch holes in the correct size. If they are too large, the rivet may lean to one side.
• Push rivets in the pre-punched holes so the flat heads of the rivets are on the outside of the binder.
• Place the base of the ring mechanism so the holes fit over the open end of the rivets.
• The binder must be opened flat on a very hard and flat surface. Granite, smooth concrete or metal work best.
• Place the rivet setter on the open part of the rivet.
• Use a hammer, preferably a mallet style to hit the top of the rivet setter with force until you see the rivet is tightly set in the ring mechanism.
