Helmet rivets
« on: March 14, 2011, 04:06:01 PM »
I am looking the little rivets to clip a faceguard onto a Cooper helmet that I have got hold off. Does anyone know places/websites that stock them. I have tried every hardware store and website I can imagine. I have even tried mycro.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Is it the bit you clip your strap onto at the side of the helmet your looking for or the bit that attaches the faceguard to the forehead of the helmet?

They should be in any hardware store. They come on at the end of a sort of thin metal rod about 2 inches long and then you need a riveter to get them on the helmet and the metal rod part falls off. Me da usually keeps a supply of them for doing the same job. I must ask him where he gets them.

Would have thought you will get away with a stainless M4 or M5 x 12mm pan head machine screw with washer and nyloc nut. Fit the nut and washer on the outside or the screw will dig into your head.

Ok, found out. They would sell the rivets in a motor factors. They are 3/16 pop rivets. An you need a rivetor to put them in.
