Again, everything I've said was presented directly by CL reps, and does not contradict anything you have posted from their website.Your hostile attitude and red herrings do not in any way change these facts, and are a great way to ensure no one actually cares to help you with your inquiries.
Steel threaded inserts, would be a nut in theory. My reply was stating I could use a nut, and told no only a rivet would do. It does change it changes a lot, First off most of the case does not have Steel rivnut things, I know what you are talking about and some of the case does have it however not all of it does.
Mountain Mods does not have it all, and again those are just nuts that are attached to the alu plate, using nuts would provide the same idea.
The statement that started this was "I just don't know if your case can remain solid w/out rivets" Rivets dont make the world go round lol, Rivets are not even that strong in the greater scheme they are a cheap way out and most defiantly can be replaced.
If "Helping me" involves saying that you can only use a rivet to secure 2 pieces of metal, then you are not helping me you are providing wrong information.
You also most defiantly know they are there as they stick out like the nut that they are
. They show as a round circle. with a thread in them. They can be seen on the back of a case labs interior as well as on many other cases.
the LD case in question also posses them for all of its screw holes. However they are only used in some places on the Caselabs case, not everywhere has them only the bits that will have screws in and out of them frequently AFAIK.Edited by Cyber Locc - 2/3/16 at 1:10pm
