I installed a fitting for a spin pole on my front crossbar, in front of the mast step and had a problem with one rivet/hole. When I pulled on the mandrel, instead of feeling tension like the other 3, it immediately broke off completely, leaving the rivet slightly loose. I figured, no problem, it was a bad rivet. I drilled out and replaced with another one, and the exact same thing happened again.
It seems if it is a problem with the hole, wouldn't the mandrel just keep pulling, and the rivet pull out? Is it possible I just had a couple bad rivets?
I don't want to keep trying over and over possibly making the situation worse.
