What you've got yourself there is a standard bulb type rivet. Depending on what type of ski you have you may or may not need them. I believe that some of the older skis had a rail that was riveted into place, and had to be removed to install the mat, then you would use the rivets to reinstall the rail. There may have even been a few skis that had the mat riveted in place??? You grind off the old rivets, install the mat and use a rivet tool (cheap $10-20, or you can borrow one from some of the auto parts stores) to pop the new rivets in place.Anyone know what I use these for and how to use them..
Usually you just drill them out, but be careful not to enlarge the hole or the new rivets won't fit. Sometimes you have to grind the head with a dremel tool and then drill.OH, I see.. I checked out my ski, the back bumpers do have them.
How do I take the old ones out?
Is there a tool or trick to put the new ones in?
Appreciate the help
