Could you perhaps be a little more specific regarding the context?
Ample context from the asker is both a valuable tool and a simple courtesy much appreciated by your would-be helpers: Both to help us invest our own time efficiently in your behalf -- as you are requesting -- and to give you the best answers possible, it makes good sense to include adequate context in your queries -- as a minimum:
(1) a [perhaps more specific] definition of the general context (subject matter), plus
(2) ample specific context: the entire source sentence (or more -- excepting of course confidential/proprietary information, which can be disguised or omitted.)
(Other useful information may include for instance the target audience/country and the purpose of the translation.)
All the best, Tom.

This is either a new type of rivet(ing) or just a creative customer ;-) - we all know this kind of creativity, I guess.
Internet search with Copernic and Google did not deliver even 1 (!) hit for both of the terms, which is extremely rare. So I have let my fantasy flow freely....
It must be a rivet that combines a self-tapping screw with the riveting method, this means the rivet must have a self-tapping thread at the outside that cuts into the material to provide better fit and is then formed like a pop (or blind) rivet. Hope these ideas help
none - just experience
