    Using Rivets to Lock Down Tiny Tach

    I am trying to figure out a gun I can use to rivet the tiny tach down. Most are too big. Anyone know of one that will work? The space is so small from the hole to the side of the tach.

    Check out these guys. I would just be afraid the pressure that would be put on it would crack the plastic. Especially if it is not perfectly flat. Can you use a small nut and self locking bolt?

    The rivets I have will work. Perfect size, the ones that came in my hydroturf kit. It is the gun that is the problem

    Its alright!


    You gave me an idea to maybe try and find something decent to bolt it down with. Hmmm.....


    I would still rather rivet it though because of how easy it would be with the right tool.

    I used clear silicone and its been holding tight for over a year now. $2 and 1 minute of your time. Its nice because if you want to relocate or remove it there arent any holes left behind. I can pull on it pretty hard and it wont move a bit. If I want to remove it though all it would take is a little prying from a corner and peeling it upward slowly.

    Let me see if I can post a picture of where I am trying to put mine. My camera is missing and the only thing I have is my Blackjack.
