Less Expensive than clips!
Use with elongated clip holes!
Easy to Use!
The W. D. Davis CWR-1 rivet kit replaces the S-43 fabric retaining clips in the wing rib flange with a large bearing area head "Pop" rivet. The kit consists of 1000 rivets and enough self-adhesive reinforcing tape to do both wings on a Cessna 120/140 or 170.
The wing clips worked well for the first and probably second time the wings were covered, but over the years the holes may have gotten enlarged to the point that the clips no longer fit snugly and can work their way right through the surface tapes in some cases. If you need to replace all of the clips you will be faced with an expense of over four dollars for each clip, even with a 40% discount.
Our STC is available for use with either the Poly Fiber covering system, the Super Flight covering system, and the Stewart covering system. When ordering your covering materials, do NOT order the rib lacing tapes as these will be provided with the Pop Rivet Kit.

Don't be intimidated by the rivet removal procedure in the installation instructions. These rivets have aluminum mandrels and are easily drilled out without driving the mandrel out first. The aluminum mandrel also eliminates the possibility of dissimilar metal corrosion which is present in steel mandrels.
