Generically referred to as Type D (flanged) or Type E (flush) insert nuts, E-Z Hex™ (Hex Drive) inserts provide sturdy machine threads in soft woods. These hex drives are an ideal solution for any application where assembly or disassembly could lead to thread erosion or stripping.
E-Z Hex™ inserts feature broad external threads that provide exceptional holding power in materials like pine, composition board, MDF, and plywood. We offer E-Z Hex™ with internal thread sizes ranging from #8 to 3/8-16, plus M6 and M8. Die-cast from a durable zinc alloy, E-Z Hex™ inserts install quickly with an Allen wrench or optional drive tool.
E-Z LOK hex drive threaded inserts are available with internal thread sizes from #8 to 3/8, as well as M6 and M8. Most sizes are available in a variety of lengths to meet the needs of your unique application.
