'Push Pin' needed

I need a supply of what I will call 'pushpins': they are about 1/4" diameter and push into a hole (in a 1/8" plate) - when released, they 'expand and grab the hole/plate or grab the bottom of the plate and pull the rest of the pin against the plate - I'm guessing that you folks with a vast and wide experience will have some suggestions of where to go (other than ...)

Re: 'Push Pin' needed

Cleco is used in aircraft building as a temporarily bond, to get the plate(s) centered and in place. After that the permanent rivets are applied.

There are also blind rivets, Cherry, Avdel, Pop, Gesipa - you name it. They are for permanent bonds and require special equipment (pliers).

Is that what you mean?

Re: 'Push Pin' needed

If you are looking for a permanent fitting, into which you screw a threaded fastening, Rivnut is the thing. Available in st st.
