Bulbed Cherrymax® Rivets

Bulbed CherryMAX® is a high stem retention lock spindle

blind rivet with a visibly inspectable mechanical locking device.

CherryMAX® blind rivet system retains the large blind head of

the Bulbed CherryLOCK® rivet. Each rivet is supplied with its own

installation anvil which eliminates the problems resulting from

worn anvils. CherryMAX® fasteners are currently available in

1/8" through 1/4" diameter in both nominal and 1/64" oversize

diameters. The tools utilize one pulling head to install many

diameters, head configurations and material combinations.

Wiredraw cherrymax® ‘aB’ rivets

CherryMAX® ‘AB’ rivets are shank expanding, locked-spindle,

flush fracturing rivets meeting the requirements of NAS 1400

specification and conforming to NAS 1398/1399 ‘AB’ code

standard pages, but offering non-shift tooling installation without

changing pulling heads.

Cherry Maxibolt® blind bolts

The Cherry MaxiBOLT® Blind Bolt alloy steel and A286 CRES

conforms to NAS M90353/90354 and NAS M21140/21141, and

meets the requirements of MIL-F-81177 and MIL-F-8975 and is

listed in QPL81177 and QPL8975.

bulbed cherrylock® Rivets

The Bulbed CherryLOCK® is a high strength bulb rivet system

with a visible, inspectable locking collar. Available in 1/8"

through 3/16" diameters, several head styles and various

material strengths and combinations. Conforms to NAS

1740 specification and NAS 1738/1739 standards pages.

wiredraw cherrylock® rivets

Wiredraw holefilling CherryLOCK® rivets offer the widest range

of sizes (3/32" through 1/4" diameters), materials and strength

levels of any blind fastening system. Conforms to NAS 1400

specification and NAS 1398/1399 standards pages.

cherry® nut-plate rivets

Cherry® Nut-plate blind rivets are manufactured in 3/32" and

1/8" diameters, steel or CRES, for quickly and economically

installing nut-plates to NAS M25027 requirements, with one

operator. There are no blind side or limited accessibility problems,

no damage or distortion to the surrounding material or nut

baskets. They are available in pull-through or self-plugging

styles and may be installed with hand or pneumatic tools.

Cherry® MS self-plugging and pull-through rivets and tooling

systems have been a reliable standard of the industry since

their introduction. Although superseded by the locked-spindle

specifications NAS 1400 and NAS 1740, Cherry® MS rivets are

still widely used under MS20600/01/04/05 part numbers.

cherry sst® blind rivets

The Cherry SST® Blind Rivet System was designed to solve many

of the blind fastening problems associated with aircraft assemblies

requiring superior sheet take-up. Installation of the SST Blind

Rivet System ensures consistent and permanent fastening of

difficult assemblies with inherent gapping or slightly misaligned

holes. The SST Blind Rivet System can be installed with standard

CherryMAX® tooling with no adjustments needed. Eliminate

sheet gaps in your toughest assemblies. Nominal and oversize

in -4, -5, and -6 diameters are available in three head styles,

universal, 100° flush and 100° reduced flush (NAS 1097).

Self-plugging rivet (SPR®)

Cherry® 3/32" Self Plugging, locked spindle blind rivets are

designed for the attachment of nut plates and other applications

requiring the use of a 3/32” diameter, aluminum sleeve, self

plugging rivet. They meet and exceed strength requirements

of Mil-N-25027 for torque-out and push-out of nut plates.

Tacking rivet

The Cherry® CCR284 Tacking Rivet is designed to improve

drill-out by using external splines on the rivet shank to

prevent rotation. The Cherry® Blind Tacking Rivet System

is available with a 5056 sleeve and a C-1018 steel stem.

Sleeve finishes include clear, red or black anodize.


The Chobert® speed fastening design provides customers with

a rapid assembly system. Chobert® rivets are installed by the

customer on a re-usable mandrel. The installation process is

simple and efficient; successive rivets are installed in pre-drilled

holes on each cycle of the installation tool's trigger.


The industry approved MBC® system is one of the industry’s

simplest and most versatile riveting systems available today.

This lightweight high-strength riveting system features a flush

breaking stem. The mechanically locked stem contributes

substantially to the integrity and performance of the fastener.


The SP rivet provides the aerospace customer with a

reliable and time-proven self-plugging blind fastener.

The SP products are qualified to SBAC standards

The Cherry Lockbolt Pins and Collars are two piece structural

fasteners available in a variety of materials and configurations.

The pins are available as “pull” or “stump” types in 1/8” through

3/8 diameters (nominal and oversize). They are manufactured to

applicable NAS standards from Aluminum, CRES or Steel with

protruding and flush head styles. Our Collars conform to NAS1080

and are manufactured from Steel, CRES, Monel or Aluminum.”

Shear pin fasteners

cherrybuck® 95 ksi one-piece shear pins

The CherryBUCK® shear pin is a bi-metal, one piece fastener

which combines a 95ksi shear 6Al-4V titanium shank with a

ductile Ti/Cb tail to provide weight savings over two-piece,

pin and collar, shear pin fasteners and reduce installation

costs through one-piece automated riveting equipment.

Cherry e-z buck® shear pins

Cherry E-Z BUCK® is a 50 ksi ductile Ti/Cb alloy solid

rivet. Its ductility eliminates the sheet distortion found

when using monel rivets. The Ti/Cb alloy provides

weight savings of 33% over monel and 26% over A-286

CRES rivets. Cherry E-Z BUCK® titanium alloy rivets are

complementary to CherryBUCK® bimetallic titanium rivets.

fasteners for composite

Cherry® 1900

The Cherry 1900 is manufactured to meet NAS1919 and

NAS1921 and is available in all sizes and materials. This

fastener has become a fastener of choice in many aircraft

designs because of the increased use of composites. Our

“Shift Washer” design extends the tool life and utilizes the

Cherry “one tool concept” making the logistics of installing

different sizes and types of fasteners much simpler.

Titanium maxibolt®

Titanium MaxiBOLT® Blind Bolts feature expanded performance

capabilities for metallic and composite blind fastening

applications. They provide a flush, burr-free installation with

no shaving required. The Titanium MaxiBOLT® offers fast and

consistent installation by utilizing single action tooling with

a patented shift washer design. The all titanium sleeve and

stem are compatible with exotic composite materials, they

cause no delamination of the exit side of the structure during

installation and offer a blindside slope tolerance up to 7°.

Tufthane coated Cherry® rivets are designed for use

in composites. The Tufthane coating is applied directly

to aluminum or other sleeve material fasteners to

provide a barrier against corrosion attack.

Cherry hollow end e-z buck®

The Cherry HOLLOW END E-Z BUCK® is a double flush, cavity

type rivet of TI/Cb material uniquely designed for use in a

“soft” upset that prevents damage to the composite material.

Installation Tools

For over 70 years, the Cherry installation tools have been used

by aircraft manufacturers and repair facilities throughout the

world. Ergonomics, reliability and robustness backed by the Cherry

Warranty and Technical Assistance are the leading characteristics

of our tools. There are four types of riveters also available in a

“split” version, in which a light hand held unit is connected by

hoses to a remote power unit.

• Non-shifting riveters: only the active piston stroke provides


• Lockbolt Riveters: both the active and the return piston stroke

provide power

• Shifting (Double Action) Riveters: these Cherrylock™ riveters

have two pistons working together to complete the fastener


• Hand Powered Riveters: Operated by hand power, our G800

weighs less than 2 Lbs. and provides up to 5000 Lbs.of pull


We also offer a wide variety of straight, offset and right angle

pulling heads, adaptors, tool and service kits. For assistance please
