I am trying to locate 7mm x 9mm rivets for my Snowtrooper costume. I have looked nearly everywhere and have not been able to find them yet. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Bifurcated (split) rivets? Not pop rivets correct? I've had no luck sourcing split rivets locally either. Online probably best bet sadly

When I hear the word rivet I assume it's a pop rivet. I have had 0 luck online. I assume I need a pop rivet for my cod piece.

From the CRL...

"Strapping should be attached at the "point" 2 rivets, side by side
Optional: Screen accurate method utilizes 2, 7mm x 9mm single cap rivets, each fed through a M4 x 15mm washer. (side by side)"

So for screen accurate you'll want something like this?

Yep, I believe those are the correct rivets used. With that said, you can be approved using most any basic type of rivet.

Tandy Leather carries a large variety of snaps and rivets. They have one here in Orem as well as Sandy and Salt Lake.
