Chimney liner

OK I'm helping out the gas guys and I said that I would install the chimney vent. It is the hefty steel colapsable stuff that looks like dryer vent tube. The instructions are a little vauge on how to connect the tubing to the top collar. It came with metal screws and these wierd rivets that I have never seen. It sayst to rivet the tube to the collar but I dont know how to work the rivets and I dont have a rivet gun or whatever. will the screws work just as well?

I go get a good rivet gun and put them in.Or you can get some SST screws and nuts and use them . I dont think I would just use the sheet metal screws to hold it up ED

flue liner

have installed manyof these, definately use what they give you or stainless screws, as regular zinc coated will eventually give way, and liner will fall.
