Installation of E-Z LOK solid threaded inserts for metal is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3.

Drill Tap Thread
Drill hole with standard drill. Tap hole with standard tap. Thread E-Z LOK into place with
screwdriver, bolt/jam nut,
or optional drive tool.

Unlike coil inserts, which require a special tap and installation tool, E-Z LOK solid threaded inserts for metal are installed using standard tools. Simply drill the appropriately sized hole with a standard drill…tap the hole with a standard tap…and then turn in the E-Z LOK like an ordinary fastener with a screwdriver, bolt and jam nut, or an E-Z LOK drive tool. Installation is as easy as 1-2-3.

E-Z LOK inserts are self-locking. Immediately upon installation, pre-applied Loctite™ on the external threads begins to set and the newly installed insert is fastener ready in minutes. At full cure (72 hours), the Loctite™ seals against liquids and gases to pressures of 6,000 psi.
