Sorry if this is a hijack, but I have two questions about rivet nuts.
First, does anyone make them in stainless? I was just looking all over and can only find them in steel and one type in rubber.
Second, for them to work properly, does the surface of the hardware being mounted need to be in contact with the outter surface of the rivnut? I am thinking of mounting a Harkin cam cleat with a riser, for example. The riser is hollow, meaning the bolts come through the cleat and down through the riser, into the surface being mounted to. There would be no pressure on the outter surface of the rivnut.
I realize toggles might be a better choice here, since they would be pulled snugly against the back of the mounting surface, but I can't find togles in 10-24, which is the size the bolts must be to mount the Harkin cam cleat. :-(
OOPS - I found the stainless ones. Way too early for me to be posting...
