NATO approves MEMFast rivet nut hand tool

ffm-95-mem-001The RNHT48 rivet nut hand tool, launched by MEMFast (Make Ends Meet Limited) four years ago, has now been approved for use by all NATO affiliated organisations worldwide.

The RNHT48 is made in the UK and offers great flexibility as it installs M4 to M10 rivet nuts in steel, stainless steel, aluminium and brass by using a simple ‘spin’ action. The company says the RNHT48 is much tougher and easier to use than conventional hand pliers and is much more compact than lever type tools.

A 10mm ratchet spanner is included with the tool to assist with installation of larger sizes of rivet nuts and a special hex allen key is provided to enable extraction of a worn or broken mandrel in seconds.

Features of the RNHT48 include high component quality and durability; ease of assembly and use; robustness in all environmental conditions; as well as compactness and cost. “Not only does the tool represent excellent value for money, the ongoing cost is negligible since the only parts that will need replacing are the mandrels. These are standard Grade 12.9 high-tensile socket head cap screws, which can be sourced anywhere and, if worn or broken, changed very quickly. Spare mandrels are included with the tool.”
