About our Double Cap Rivets:

A double cap rivet has a smooth cap at both ends of the rivet. This is often preferred for items where both ends of the rivet will be in contact (i.e. bracelets, garments, shoes, dog collars, etc). They can be set by punching a hole in the leather and using a rivet setting tool (by hand) or press machine to set the rivet. Used for both decoration and function in holding pieces together it is commonly used as a substitute for sewing, offering both mechanical strength and decor.

Choosing the right rivet size:

I highly recommend pulling out a ruler with both standard and metric units to get a visual idea of sizing. You also will want to know how thick your material is, if using leather you can pick up one of our handy laser cut leather thickness gauges for cheaper than you’d buy at a store.

First thing you need to determine is what you will be using the rivets for. Will they be for decor/accenting only? If so you probably want a shorter post (enough for your material thickness) and the diameter can vary to whatever size or style you wish. When using the rivet to attach multiple pieces together you’ll want a long enough post to be able to meet the thickness requirement of the stacked pieces as well as a larger head for stability. Ideally your rivet post should be 1-3mm longer than the thickness of your material for a proper set.
