RE how to hold rivet bolts

Hi, I have just done mine, on the odd stubborn one i used a pair of small long nosed pliers, with a touch of Loctite thread sdhesive on the threads. Most of mine tightened up with just pressing against the rivet head while i tightened the nut with a spanner. It may work for you.
Regards

Best way to hold bolt rivets

Thanks Mike and Steve working on that. I did not know "spinners" existed I have been using my small socket set but its too clumsey to get into corners spinners look more useful.

Best way to hold rivet bolts

I found the rivets that need the nuts on the inside of the rim are difficult. I actually put some super glue under the heads when i pushed them into the holes on the rim. After a few minutes they were held tight enough to hold against the turning of the spanner.
