POP rivets, also called Blind Rivets, are used to connect two pieces of material in a quick efficient manner with a hand riveter or pneumatic rivet gun. POP Rivets are tubular, composed of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed. Both the hat and mandrel may be made of the same material (ex. All Stainless Steel) or a combination of two materials (ex. Copper Hat / Brass Mandrel). Rivets are measured in installed grip range and length.
Varieties of POP Rivets (Blind Rivets) include Domed Open End, Closed End, Countersunk, Large Flange Open End, Multi Grip and Structural. They are available in 304 Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Alloy Steel, Copper, Brass, and several other variations of these metals.

The answer is MANY! See the list of available options and descriptions below:
Domed Open End POP Rivets / Blind Rivets
POP Rivets, also known as blind rivets, are used to connect two pieces of material in quick, efficient way. Domed POP Open End Rivets are tubular, composed of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed. Domed POP Rivets are available with white, black or brown colored mandrel in Aluminum.
Closed End Rivets differ from a standard blind pop rivet in that they feature a flat, closed end which creates a watertight seal. Also known as a waterproof rivet.
A countersunk rivet, also known as a Flat Rivet, is used in countersunk holes and once set, finish flush to the surface. They are used in tracks where the head will not protrude into sliding tracks or rollers. The hat of the rivet is almost inverted, with a 120 degree countersink in the integrated washer. Countersunk POP Rivets are tubular, composed of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed.
Large flange pop rivets, also known as Oversize Rivets, have a larger washer on the hat than standard POP Rivets. Large Flange POP Rivets are tubular, composed of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed.
Multi Grip Rivets can substitute conventional rivets in applications where the thickness of the riveted material varies. One Multi Grip Rivet has the grip range of different rivet sizes. This grip range allows for flexibility in design and a lower rivet inventory, as one size of Multi Grip rivet can be suitable for a variety of jobs, including mismatched holes. One Multi Grip Rivet can be used as an equivalent for at least three different rivet sizes.
Structural Rivets, also known as interlock rivets in stainless steel with a stainless steel mandrel. Interlock pop rivets create a stronger assembly than standard stainless steel pop rivets, because of the amount of force that they generate. Domed head blind rivets in this selection are commonly referred to as both Interlock and Structural Rivets.
