The spring washers help to increase the clamping stresses of the rivets.

I work with and design aircraft components. If a rivet or bolt gets slop it has zero fatigue life.

i.e. If you stick a 6mm bolt in an 8mm hole it can carry zero load. Simples.

I apologise for being too fussy. I have a syndrome called self preservation. I've noticed Hardly-Worthit drivers don't have this basic human instinct.
