That jobolt isn't really a bolt because the bolt snaps off on installation. Just an expensive rivet.

To equate a Jo-Bolt with a rivet is a bit disingenuous. While you could replace a rivet with a Jo-Bolt, a rivet is not a replacement for a Jo-Bolt. Jo-Bolts are mainly used in situations that call for high-strength blind fasteners. Others that might fall into this category are Huck Blind Bolts and Cherry Blind Bolts. They all need special tools to use them.

I said that because it works like any blind rivet. It said the bolt snaps off and the nut could fall off into an engine.
Sure, it's likely stronger than any blind rivet. The one in the OP leaves the bolt intact and that's what I want.
But those likely are too big a hole.
