Really small rivets to affix shower latch
« on: June 20, 2016, 04:45:13 PM »
I have a 2008 Fleetwood Niagara tent camper. The collapsible shower/commode has hard walls that fold down. The latches that hold the hard walls in place while they are up are held on using really small rivets: http://imgur.com/YqpCClS

It looks like these rivets are about 1/16 inch in diameter, but I have not had any luck finding such small rivets at the hardware store or online. Does anyone know where I could find them?

Thanks,
E

How are you figuring the diameter to be 1/16"? I've never seen them that small. I would think that the size is 1/8". Take a 1/8" dill bit and try drilling one of them out.  Just drill deep enough so that the head falls off.

You were right. The 1/8 inch ones did fit. Thanks!
