Frequently Asked Questions

Why are my Alligator® Rivet Fasteners loose?

Your fasteners may not be fully set when applied.

  • You may be able to reinsert the splice into the ART tool and reset with a hammer. If you attempt to reinsert the splice into the ART tool, make sure you have left the Pilot Nails in the tool so rivets properly curl.

If the belt has a rough top or diamond top impression cover, skive the belt before fastener installation. 

Your belt may be too thin for Alligator®  Rivet Fasteners.

  • Use the Alligator Rivet Application Gauge to double-check the acceptable skived belt thickness.
