Flex Boot Flat Rivets (set of 4)

Flex Boot Flat Rivets (set of 4)


Sold as a set of four pairs which is enough for two boots.

The Flex Boot Flat rivets can be used to permanently attach the back strap to the medial (inside) side of the boot. They are especially useful if your horse has a narrow gait and tends to brush it's feet together, which can cause the straps to come undone when the standard ball rivets are used.

Attaching the back strap with the flat rivets instead, and cutting off any extra strap beyond the rivet closure will ensure the strap stays closed. But keep in mind that it’s not quick to open the flat rivets once they are attached (you need a screwdriver to undo them), so make sure you get the fit right when putting the flat rivets on.

Flat rivets are not included in the standard Flex Boot set when you purchase a boot, but they can be purchased separately. The rivets are one-size-fits-all, so the same flat rivets will fit all Flex Boot sizes.

For additional staying power, we recommend using Locktite thread locker blue 242.  Put a dab in the cap end of the rivet and also on the thread for extra security.  Have paper towels handy to absorb any excess Thread Locker. 

Here is a video showing you how to attach the flat rivets.
