"Rivet" in context

A rivet is a type of mechanical fastener used to join two pieces of metal or other materials. It is typically formed from a steel strip which is then shaped into a cylindrical shape with two or more points at one end, and a flange at the other. Rivets are generally installed with a hammer or punch and remain in place as the two pieces are tightly joined together. Due to the strength of the rivet itself and the material used to make it, it is an ideal solution for joining materials that require a strong and permanent connection.

Rivets are primarily used in commercial and military applications.
