NEW PRODUCTS – Large Plastic Snap Rivets (10-packs) – Long + Short


Enter the world of cardboard construction and build playful robot friends!

Instead of slapping on tape or waiting for your hot glue to warm up, you can use these Large Plastic Snap Rivets! So easy to install. Just poke them through the cardboard and fasten with the back piece. This will ensure clean, movable joints and attachments. You can even remove them with some effort (but they’ll hold as long as you don’t pry them apart)

We’ve got these in two sizes, 9mm to 13mm AND 13mm to 16mm.

First up, the Large Short Plastic Snap Rivets!

Instead of slapping on tape or waiting for your hot glue to warm up, you can use these Large Plastic Rivets! They have a large honkin’ 19mm diameter rivet face, for mega surface contact. They’re so easy to install. Just poke or cut a 9mm diameter hole in your cardboard, then side one half through the front, one half through the back and snap them together. This will ensure clean, movable joints and attachments. They’re strong, and nearly impossible to remove once in place.

Unlike our smaller pop rivet packs (say that five times fast!), these are constructed with a larger, wider head (19mm).

Works best with cardboard, foam or other thick materials, and can fit about 9mm to 13mm thick material. You can crunch the two halves together as much as you like to get a tighter fit. You can connect two pieces together with one rivet and they’ll rotate. Two rivets can be used if you want them to stay still.

If you need to connect some thicker material, check out the longer version of these rivets.

Now, the Large Long Plastic Snap Rivets!

Unlike our previous pop rivet packs (say that five times fast!), these are constructed with a larger, wider head (approx 19mm) AND longer tails (approx 14mm), allowing you to craft with thicker cardboard.

Works best with 2 ply cardboard, cardstock or other paper products that are about 2mm thick. You can connect two pieces together with one rivet and they’ll rotate. Two rivets can be used if you want them to stay still.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
