Affordable Rivet Tools

Apr 1, 2022 | Tools

Looking for affordable rivet tools? Gage Bilt tools are a great alternative to other big name rivet and lock bolt installation tools. They are used to install a wide variety of commercial rivets and lock bolts including Huck®, Avdel®, Cherry®, and POP®, Magn-Grip®, BOM®, and Avbolt®.

There are many advantages to using Gage Bilt instead of the other the installation tools on the market. Besides being less expensive, Gage Bilt tools are easier to use and maintain.


The Gage Bilt Advantage


Easy Trigger

The trigger design on both the pneumatic and pneudraulic tools reduces operator fatigue and carpal tunnel syndrome. A low effort trigger gives operators more control, precision and confidence.


One Piece Piston

Each tool has a one piece piston which is less likely to jam. Other tools have two piece pistons which can create pintail jams which can cause delays and headaches.


One Metal Base Cover

Strong, yet lightweight, the metal base cover is connected with one screw which makes it easy to remove. Plastic base covers are subject to breakage when the operator sets the tool down or tries to remove it.


Easy To Bleed

Gage Bilt tools can be bleed in 10 seconds, whereas other installation tools can be difficult to bleed and can take up to 10 minutes to bleed. Time is money.


Longer Stroke

The low effort trigger has a longer stroke which facilitates a single stroke installation of commercial rivets and lock bolts.


Safer Operation

With a one-piece bendable deflector, the operator is less likely to remove it during operation. Other tools have plastic parts and three-piece deflectors that are prone to breakage.


Simple Design

With less moving parts, Gage Bilt tools guarantee fast and hassle-free installations. A one piece bendable deflector, one piece piston and one piece metal base cover create a simple tool that won’t break on the job. More parts equals more inventory and more failure.



Gage Bilt tools are designed to be used with a wide variety of commercial rivets and lock bolts. They are adaptable for use in a multitude of applications with fasteners from the leading manufacturers.
