Product Description

3/8" & 1/2" Case Wall Rivet - May be used in conjunction with parts and extrusions associated with the construction of cases with 3/8 and 1/2"walls. However, depending on your particular case design and parts selections regarding your cases utilizing 1/2" case walls, the combination of items to be riveted together may require a longer rivet in some places, such as when extrusion, corners, and corner braces overlap - especially when internal backing washers are utilized. If you are unsure which rivet to use regarding your 1/2" case walls, we recommend that you get at least a 50/50 mix of this rivet and our longer CNS6700 Rivet for 1/2" case walls. That way, you can use this CNS6690 for the "thinner" spots and the CNS6700 for the "thicker" spots. It's a tightrope scenario, because most people don't like too much of the rivet tube sticking out on the inside of the case, because when the rivet draws up during installation it can leave a large "glob" protruding on the inner wall once the rivet is set in place, which then can interfere with internal installations (foam, dividers, rack rail, mounted components, etc. If you have a mixture of the two rivets, you can minimize the amount of rivet protruding on the inside, while making sure that your rivets are not too short when adequate length is required.


May be installed with pneumatic rivet gun or manual hand rivet tool.

Rivet Quantity Rule of Thumb Information:

- an average case with extrusions, 2 latches, 2 handles, 8 corners & 8 corner braces requires at least 200 rivets. If you are unsure, simply add up how many mounting holes for all of your parts. As far as extrusions go, the rule of thumb is approximately 16 rivets per stick of corner extrusion based on spacing the rivets 8 - 10 inches apart, and approximately 8 rivets per stick of Hybrid Tongue & Groove in miscellaneous locations, based on latch placement and case dimensions.

- purchase 1/2 as many backing washers as rivets.

Installation of parts, hardware & extrusions

  1. does not work on 1/2 inch no room for washer 1 Star Review

    delayed the project this is too short for 1/2" I reordered the longer but the website shows then the same length as the 6670.

    :::::::::::::::::::: DIY Road Cases® Response :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    I apologize for this. However, I wish that you would have contacted us about this upon noticing an issue, so that we could have advised you as follows:

    1. First, we would have requested a photo of the rivet with you holding a tape measure to it to make sure that you received the correct rivet, and not a shorter rivet by accident.

    2. We would have reminded you what we mention on the product description for this rivet . . . "May be used in conjunction with parts and extrusions associated with the construction of cases with 3/8 and 1/2"walls. However, depending on your particular case design and parts selections regarding your cases utilizing 1/2" case walls, the combination of items to be riveted together may require a longer rivet in some places, such as with corner and corner brace installations, especially when internal backing washers are utilized. If you are unsure which rivet to use regarding your 1/2" case walls, we recommend that you get a 50/50 mix of this rivet and our longer CNS6700 Rivet for 1/2" case walls."

    Lastly, I am assuming that when you stated "6670" above, you were actually referring to our 6700 Extra Long Rivet (as we have no rivet with a part number of "6670"). You stated, "the website shows then the same length as the 6670". This is not correct. Our spec drawing for the 6690 Rivet shows its length as .812" and the spec drawing for the 6700 Rivet shows its length as .938".

    I will also email you and see if we can get to the bottom of your dilemma.

    Thanks you,

  4. Great quality rivets 5 Star Review

    I know it seems strange to write a review about rivets, but they're such an important part of the build. I had never used rivets before these, so I didn't know how good they were until I ran out in the middle of a project. I went to Lowes and, sure enough, they had rivets. I brought them home to finish up and they kept breaking. Such a letdown after using these nice rivets. The moral of the story: Order these rivets and order 2-3 times as many as you think you'll need!
