What Length Rivets (or Eyelets) to Order:
The ideal Crafted Findings rivet length is approximately 1mm (1/32" - 1/16") longer than the total thickness of the pieces you are riveting. If in doubt (textured metal, imprecise measurements, etc.), it's generally best to go for a rivet that is a bit too long. Rivet assortments are a great way to get started, then follow up by ordering specific lengths as needed.
When using rivets longer than 9/32" (5/16", 11/32", 3/8", 13/32", 7/16", 15/32"), use the Long Reach tools rather than the original height tool set.
This reference chart is a rough guide to help you decide which rivet lengths are likely to work best for new projects.
