What kind of Rivet is this on Jalousies?


Got my Jalousies back from the Soda Blasting and are buffing and re-assembling.

One of the Rivets holding the mechanisms lost a head. They are not TIGHT but allow the levers to move... I assume there is some technique involved here.
I Gues I could use a bucked rivet and just not hammer it in all the way? hmmm... no maybe not as clearance is an issue on the head side as it will interrupt the mechanism.

Does anyone know what type this is?
What tools are required?
Alternatives OK too.

Thanks so much.
