    Pop rivets

    What size pop rivets do I need for my 2006 ranger trail to reattach the side bunks?

    Through bolt them. Harder to do but you wont mess with them again. Make sure you use stainless fasteners and nylock nuts. you may need a few washers on some of the holes. I only did every other rivet hole and it is fine.

    to hold the sides on? It can take that kind of stress and movement?

    IMG_20121012_152801.jpgI purchased alum rivets and alum washers from Hanson Rivet and Supply _ Hanson Rivet and Supply Co., rivets, rivet, riveters, riveting, machines, tubular, semi-tubular, solid, blind, pop, fasteners, drive, hardware, orbital, pneumatic, squeezers, split, tinners, shoulder, usm, ms, tools, aerospace, aircraft, threaded, in. 800_777_4838 Installed them last summer on the bunks and they are still holding tight. The alum washers give the rivets something more solid that fiberglass to hold onto.

    Dome head 3/16 x .876-1.000 grip - AD616ABS aluminum blind rivet w/alum mandrel pack of 100
    ABUP-6 Alum back-up washer - .192/.196 x .500 x.060

    two years and no problems. but i do not ever touch them when loading the boat, you are right they would not hold up if you bounced off them while loading.

    Call Ranger and have you send you some. I had to take some very small washers and put on the backside and then pulled the rivet tight. I think they are $.40 from Ranger.
