7. Loosening of a riveted connection

A riveted connection can be undone only by destroying the rivet.

For this purpose, one rivet head has to be chiselled off by a flat chisel, and the rivet has to be driven out of the hole with the help of a drift pin.

Figure 32 - Chiselling-off of rivet heads

Beware of splitting off rivet heads - put up a safety lattices or safety guards.

Rivets can be destroyed also by drilling or grinding-off of the rivet heads.
