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.
