Latest News: Forums Technical mast fittings – self tappers Reply To: mast fittings – self tappers


Strangely enough I was recently thinking of asking on the forum for any advice as to when to use rivets and when to use self tappers – so perhaps I can post that question here. Any advice would be appreciated. I have some clamcleats to fix onto the boom for the slab reefing lines which the head of my rivet gun wont fit inside so they will have to be attached with self tappers – but if you could use either, does it actually matter which form of fixing is used?
