A force to be reckoned with: New! The Huck Range Force Tool

NEW! Huck Range Force™ Battery Installation Tool

Available from Star Fasteners, the Huck® Range Force battery installation tool has been designed to combine industry-leading performance with superior eliability. This new advancement in battery-powered installation tooling is the only battery tool on the market with electronically adjustable pull force for installation of pintail-less BobTail lockbolts.

It can install the complete Huck range of structural and non-structural rivets (up to 1/4" / 6.4mm) as well as two-piece fasteners (up to 1/4" BobTail / Hucktainer® / Magna-Grip® / C6L®). In addition, it boasts exceptional quality for superior reliability and durability (tested to 50,000 installations). The high pull force is adjustable and it features a long stroke length, providing considerable versatility. What’s more, there’s cross compatibility with Huck nose assemblies and Makita 18v batteries.


With a fully equipped workshop and experienced team, Star Fasteners tool workshop services are reliable and timely, so there's minimal down time and a quick turnaround for every job. Star Fasteners' comprehensive range of spares and genuine components ensures a timely service, with large stocks of spares from leading manufacturers such as Huck®, FAR® and VVG®. Star Fasteners can arrange to pick the tool up by its van or courier. A quote detailing all parts and costs is raised. If required, Star can guide you through a process to make a decision and find the most economical outcome. Each tool gets a unique reference so Star Fasteners can view its full maintenance history.


A regular maintenance programme supports every production environment.

  • Helps to ensure that fasteners are being installed properly
  • Satisfies health and safety obligations
  • Keeps production moving and ensures tools are operating correctly

If tools are brought back into the workshop, a typical tool service will involve a complete strip down, de-greasing and cleaning of all parts with a specialist hot-parts washer. Once assessed, if necessary, Star will replace seals and worn parts. Finally, the tool is re-primed, re-set as required and thoroughly tested. Servicing can be arranged to fit in with shutdowns or down time to suit factory schedules. The firm’s extensive stocks of tooling spares (including for many obsolete models) are also on hand for those who prefer to carry out their own servicing and repairs. Generally, Star can offer next day delivery and talk you through some simple preventative maintenance measures to get the most out of your tool and ensure minimal downtime, as part of the service.


Should your workshop suddenly become busy, or a specialist tool is needed for a specific contract, Star Fasteners can offer short or long-term hire tools. The firm also offers service hire whilst a tool is in the workshop for service or repair.


Star offers quality tools that can stand up to the rigours of a busy workshop environment and can demonstrate the latest models and provide advice on tool options best suited to the application and the environment. Star Fasteners is committed to continuously improve and expand its tooling product portfolio to ensure that it remains at the forefront of modern assembly requirements. "As the UK's largest Huck® fastener distributor, Star Fasteners has become synonymous with the constant quest for innovation. We offer factory visits to tailor a tooling package that can address issues such as noise reduction and trip hazards. When standard solutions do not fit, we work together to find a resolution."


And that's not all - Star Fasteners is happy to send an expert member of the team to provide on-site training in your own workplace or you can visit the purpose-built workshop: "Our team are experienced in working in production environments and understand the complications that tool downtime brings. "We can take the training back to basics. From checking optimum air pressures, to knowing what to look for when inspecting equipment, this knowledge then leads onto detecting and correcting potential problems ideally before they occur. Major downtime is then avoided. "If you partner with Star Fasteners, we can solve fastener installation issues, boost production output and therefore profitability. We are confident that our fast and reliable repair service will meet your requirements".
