From RS PRO, this lazy tong rivet tool is an ideal solution for heavy-duty fastening applications. With a single stroke compression action, the lazy tong riveter can quick and easily insert rivets into the workpiece. The pop riveter works by simply placing the rivet in the gun, inserting into a pre-drilled hole, and then pushing in the handle until the rivet expands and the stem or pin of the rivet breaks away. It is a quick and efficient way of joining materials together securely.
The riveter has exchangeable nozzles for accommodating different rivet sizes.

What are the advantages of a lazy tong riveter over a plier style riveter?
As the lazy tong riveter relies on a single action to operate, it can reduce hand fatigue when compared to a plier style rivet gun. It is also more useful for riveting in hard to reach places. However, as the lazy tong riveters require more space to operate correctly, it is not as suitable for applications in more space-limiting environments.
