Low-Profile Threaded Insert

Item #: 39631
$4.49
Pack In Stock

Overview

These low-profile threaded inserts work especially well on thin materials such as exposed veneer seating. The secret is in the "shouldered" edge, plus the 1/4-20 thread with a bolt stop feature that prevents the bolts from being threaded through the insert. Other features include an oversized tapered body and larger threads to ensure insertion retention and eliminate pull out. Pack of 8.

Through some trial and error I found that a 29/64" hole 1/4" deep works good for screwing these into. I installed into butternut which is soft, so a harder wood may need a slightly different hole.

Work well but need an insertion tool

used several for a knock down pinewood derby track for my son's Cub Scouts. They went in well with a bolt inserted to cut the threads in the wood, but to put the insert in without the bolt was a real pain. There are three small holes in the top (not shown in the pictures in the catalog) that I used to twist the inert in flush. There has to be an insertion tool to sue with these. If Rockler had one I would buy one faster than anything.
