Tapered Shank Brake Rivets Yield Higher Torque Values

Standard straight shank brake rivets leave gaps in work hole (see Figure 2), allowing for excess movement and causing lower breakaway torque value.

National Rivet Advantage

The new National Rivet 10-9T tapered brake shank rivets yield a 47% higher breakaway torque value higher than standard straight rivets, making them longer lasting.
