Rivets are mechanical fasteners used to permanently join two or more pieces of material together. They are commonly used in situations where welding or soldering might not be practical or feasible. Rivets consist of a cylindrical shaft (known as the shank) with a head on one end and a tail on the other. The tail is deformed or "bucked" to create a second head after the rivet is inserted through aligned holes in the materials to be joined.

Rivets can be made from a variety of materials, including metals like aluminum, steel, and copper, as well as non-metal materials like plastic. They come in various shapes and sizes, each designed for specific applications.
