Fitting D Ring Rivet Dzus fasteners can be tricky the first time you try it, so please be patient :)
Dummy fitting the fastener first to check engagement distance is the only way to achieve proper results.
- Drill the hole through the two panels you want to fasten together first, making sure there is room on the rear panel for mounting of the backing plate with pop rivets.
- Dummy fit the fastner through the hole and into the backing plate to make sure the fit is good. You want it to fasten with the right amount of tension. If it is too tight you may break the fastener - if it is too loose the fastener may rattle free.
- If it is too tight and will not "Engage" nicely with a 1/2 turn, then you will need to bend the tab on the backing plate to suit.
NOTE: Make sure you heat the backing plate first before you bend it or it may snap. A cup of hot water will suffice. And bend it a little bit each time, if you go too far the fastner will be loose and the tab may break if you bend it too many times.
- If the fastener is too loose you can add the nylon washer or a normal washer to space it out.
- When you have the engagement distance set correctly, re-dummy fit the fastener and mark the holes where the backing plateattaches to the underside of the inside panel, then drill and pop rivet into place and refit the fastener.
- Remember - once the backing plate is pop riveted into place, it is more difficult to bend the tab and adjust the engagement distance without damaging the panel.
