Automotive Door Handle
The customer was using a staked tubular rivet as a hinge pin for the handle and pawl in an automotive door handle application. The customer was experiencing problems with BSR (buzz, squeak and rattle) with the tubular rivet. They tried staking the rivet tighter to the assembly, however this caused cracking of the plastic boss. The customer approached SPIROL for a recommendation on a fastener that would eliminate the BSR problems that they were experiencing, as well as explore the possibility of a cost savings.
