That's exactly the problem.
Aha! So how do the nuts help this? I can't picture in my mind what's going on.

I'm thinking out loud here, so the nuts slide onto the rivet stem and act as a spacer to raise the tool clear of the grip? Would this cause an issue where the rivet head wouldn't sit flush with the grip? Or is it fine as long as you keep downward pressure as you're "riveting"?

I may have just answered all my own questions.

:lol

Exactly this /\ Since the tip of the riveting tool can't reach the face of the rivet, the nuts take up that space and provide the same effect.

Thanks for clarifying that for me!

I've been meaning to swap screws for rivets on a 2.0 I plan to sell, and hadn't got around to it, yet.

Now I won't be all confused when I actually go to do it!

Thin tubing can work as a spacer as well when riveting the rivets.

I have stopped doing it this way though, and have been drilling holes in the grip and removing the shaft of the rivet and e6000 them in.

It also kind works as sound vents encase you want to FX it in the future

Is there any height difference between these and your regular t-track? Just curious if a Graflex with these will still fit in Darklyte Customs graflex stands.
