    Yes, back in the eighties I bought a pair of these ear openers and the same thing happened to me on the third deer head.
    I just drilled out the rivet and replaced it with a nut, bolt and washers.

    Wow mine just did that ; same one . But it lasted a long time ; just going to ace hardware they will fix me up with a strong bolt and nut. ;D
  4. I fixed it with nut & bolt. This pair is about 4 years old. The pair I had before this one was over 20 years old.
