This page lists our range of metric threaded inserts

Available with or without flanges, the inserts are driven into wood with a hexagon allen key or hexagon driver. They then provide a hard female thread which can be used many times without fear of stripping.

They are manufactured from zinc alloy for lightness and are zinc plated for corrosion resistance.
Please note that plating may be 'yellow' as pictured, or silver colour.

One of the great advantage is that these inserts can be driven in from the 'screw side' of a fixture, i.e. from the front of a model aircraft firewall or undercarriage plate, which makes them great where hand access inside is very tight.

 Available with metric threads M4, M5, M6 and now M8.

Flanged versions have a countersunk form on the head such that they can be tightened flush to the surface of the the wood.

Unflanged inserts can be driven deep below the surface if required.

Recommended drill sizes are stated below but vary with the hardness and texture of the material. If in doubt try on a scrap piece first.
