Blind bolts are multi-piece assemblies, capable of being installed from one side of the
workpiece. They are typically used in higher strength aircraft structural
areas that can be accessed from one side of the work piece.

Cherry Maxibolt® Plus Blind Bolt
Maxibolt® Plus blind bolts are available in -5, -6, and -8 diameters and stainless steel,
and titanium materials. One tool and pulling head installs all three diameters. Creating a larger blind side
footprint, they provide excellent performance in thin sheet and non-metallic applications. The flush
breaking stem eliminates shaving while the extended grip range accommodates different application thicknesses.

and composite blind fastening applications. They provide a flush, burr- free installation with no shaving required.
The Titanium Maxibolt offers fast and consistent installation by utilizing single action tooling with a unique shift
washer design. The all-titanium sleeve and stem are compatible with exotic composite materials. They cause no delamination
of the exit side of the structure during installation, and offer a blind-side slope tolerance up to 7°. Use
Cherry tools for the most reliable installation performance.
