rivet

A type of permanent mechanical fastening. Before being installed a rivet consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft with a head on one end. On installation the rivet is placed in a punched or pre-drilled hole, and the tail is upset (i.e., deformed), so that it expands to about 1.5 times the original shaft diameter, holding the rivet in place.
