Anyone have a good on-line source for rivet nuts?

I believe Fastenal carries them, and I think I've bought them off ebay as well.

Rob, it depends on what material you need. For inexpensive aluminum rivet nuts Harbor Freight recently started selling a gun and additional nuts at a very reasonable price. [] For heavier duty rivets such as mild steel, or stainless then try McMaster-Carr, then have a very good selection of nuts and installation tools but they're more expensive. []

McMaster & Carr for riv-nuts or any other hardware, plumbing (auto), fastener need. []

Comprehensive inventory, easy ordering, outstanding service. If the don;t don't need it.

I've never bought them... I used to have access to a free supply.

Sometimes it helps to know a brand name. The brand name to look for, for top-quality American-made blind threaded fasteners and installation tools, is "AVK". (
