Rivnuts have a through hole. At least, all those I've seen have. Thay are like threaded pop rivets but may do the job. There are various other names for the ones you're after, female bolts and sleeve nuts come to mind. The name seems to vary with the application. Unfortunately, both names are used for other types as well. They're used a lot in furniture. Try here.

tend to be used where you don't want exposed threads so try looking at things where H&S is important such as baby buggies, desks, wheel chairs, etc. Martin P may come across them in his line of work.

Thanks John, they are indeed required to repair some furniture. And even better the item shown on the URL will take a hex (I think) key to assist tightening.
I'll do some searching now I know what they are called.

IKEA use these in their furniture. In our local store, by the customer returns desk there are bins full of all sorts of fixings and fastenings, for customers to help themselves if some were missing from the pack. So if you only want a few....

Thaks David. So far I have only found suppliers who want to deal in hundreds or won't even talk to the general public.

Have a look in the DIY sheds, they are used to fix kitchen units together. Your M8 requirement might scupper that idea though, from memory the shed ones are M6 or there abouts.

Hmm, quite a few years back I remember a place called Apex Fasteners in Slough that would deal with the public over the counter for small quantities - have a google, maybe they're still going (or maybe some searching along the lines of 'fasteners' and 'UK' will turf up someone more local to you).

When I have a problem like that, I usually sit down at the computer and google something like "special nut" then find a manufacturers site and trawl through the pix until I find what I want. When I knowwhat its called I google that or search ebay if small quantities are required. Trouble is places like ebay people often call them other things! Pete

Try "Clarkenwell screws" or "Nookies Nuts". They specialize in small quantities for classic rebuilders.

However thanks to everybody for their suggestions. I have temporarily repaired the item use stainless stell cup square bolts, penny washers and nyloc nuts.
I'll have to spend more time looking for the correct item later.
