Rivet tool kit and new hand-tool

A 265-piece manual rivet tool kit is available from Emhart Teknologies. It includes a selection of POP brand rivets as well as the company's new hand-tool.

The PS 15 is described as a plier-style tool that has been designed to fit into the hand of the operator "with contoured grips for comfort". It has a rivet retention feature that allows use of the tool one-handed and in any position - the rivet will not disengage from the tool's nose-piece prior to setting.

Features and benefits listed by Emhart include:
= Length - 245mm, weight - 0.6kg.
= Sets aluminium rivets up to 4.8mm body diameter; steel rivets up to 4.0mm body diameter.
= Supplied with nose-pieces for 2.4mm, 3.2mm, 4.0mm, and 4.8mm rivets.
= Supplied with a nose-piece wrench.
