Specially designed for the abusive round hay baling application, Alligator® Rivet Fasteners are an affordable way to simplify belt maintenance and increase uptime.

Features and Benefits:

Can be installed quickly and easily in the field without removing the belt from the baler

Pilot nail rivet assembly penetrates without damaging carcass fibers and the installation tool produces the proper rivet curl

All stainless steel design


Can be installed using:

Alligator Rivet Tool (ART) – Small, portable tool base allows farmers to bring the tool directly to the baler to install splices

Multiple Alligator Rivet Tool (MART) – The tool's guide block allows multiple rivets to be inserted and then can be either applied with a hammer and hand punch or with an air hammer and pneumatic punch
