Does anyone have 10 - 15 split rivets, 1/8" x 5/8" nickle plated, they can sell to me?

Try your local big box hardware store.

I love this site, it seems to me that I’m always learning something new off of it or being reminded of something previously forgotten.

‘Boxes’ of 60 seem to be available off of eBay, see: https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Hillman-Group-1277-1-8-X-5-8-In-Steel-Split-Rivet-60-Pack/272896193349?epid=1310436051&hash=item3f89e17345%3Ag%3AHEMAAOSwGwlZ6zyT&_sacat=0&_nkw=split+rivets+1%2F8+5%2F8&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313&LH_TitleDesc=0 . They cost about $20 delivered which might seem expensive when you wanted a smaller quantity of what I’d expect to be a cheap(er) item. Good luck.

Hi all,

Thank you for the suggestions. Neither Lowe's nor Home Depot carry split rivets. I found the eBay sellers, and direct sellers on the Internet. I'll just pick the smallest amount I can order and go with that.
