Has anyone ever repaired these with a pop rivet pls ?

I need to repair 4 in Space Station, all below the playfield. I have seen nuts and bolts used before but these can come undone. You could use 2x nuts but I don't think I have any suitable bolts lying around.

Rather than mess about desoldering and then sending away to get riveted by a kindly soul with the expensive press .....

I wondered about an in situ repair. A correct length pop rivet could be quite a neat fix.

A 3.2mm rivet fits nicely and is actually slightly wider than broken rivet found in the base of the cabinet.

Broken original...

As noone talked me out of it, I have gone for the pop rivet repair.

Only time will tell how effective it is, but it appears to do the job and certainly tightens them up nicely 20220208_140844.jpg....

These ones are unique to the game, not just the standard single colour 20220208_145527.jpgones used across a variety of titles...
