Overview

E-Z LOK™ Threaded Insert for Metal - Thin Wall - Carbon Steel - 5/16-18 x 7/16-14

E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) Thin Wall inserts offer the advantages of E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) Standard Wall threaded inserts while using a hole size virtually the same as E-Z Coil™ inserts.

Ideal for applications where thread insert size and weight are an issue, Thin Wall threaded inserts pack all the traditional E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) advantages into a smaller diameter design. Available with internal thread sizes from #10 to 1/2 and M4 to M12, E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) Thin Wall threaded inserts install with standard tools.

E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) Thin Wall solid threaded inserts use a modified external thread to reduce the hole diameter needed to achieve the desired internal thread size. To achieve this size reduction, these inserts have an oversized minor diameter on the OD thread. This provides sufficient wall thickness to maintain insert integrity, but does necessitate the use of a drill that is larger than typically used with the corresponding tap.

For example, a Standard Wall insert with a 5/8-11 external thread (7/16-14 ID) requires the use of a 17/32 drill. A Thin Wall insert with a 5/8-11 external thread (1/2-13 ID) requires the use of a 37/64 drill.

E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) Thin Wall 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.

Features

  • Strong: screw machined out of solid steel for greater strength; superior pull out resistance.
  • Thin Wall: all the advantages of the standard E-Z LOK threaded inserts in a smaller overall diameter
  • Easy to install: solid threaded inserts install with standard tools; simply drill, tap and thread like any ordinary fastener
  • Self-Locking: pre-applied adhesive activates upon installation; inserts won't back out
  • Standard size and pitch external threads eliminate need for special taps or installation tools.
  • Install using a screwdriver, bolt and jam nut, or optional E-Z LOK™ drive tool

Applications:

  • Soft metals: aluminum, cast iron, magnesium, etc.

Installation:

Unlike E-Z Coil™ inserts, which require a special tap and installation tool, E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) threaded inserts for metal are installed using standard tools, and installation is as easy as 1-2-3.

  • Simply drill the appropriately sized hole with a standard drill
  • Tap the hole with a standard tap
  • Turn in the E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) insert like an ordinary fastener with a screwdriver, bolt and jam nut, or an E-Z LOK™ drive tool.


E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) threaded inserts are self-locking and open immediately upon installation. The pre-applied LOCTITE™ on the external threads sets immediately allowing for the newly installed insert to be fastener ready.

E-Z LOK solid wall threaded inserts are typically installed with the slots up. The slots accommodate a screwdriver or E-Z LOK drive tool. When using a bolt and jam nuts for installation, the slotted end of the insert can be either up or down.

Important Note: Hole size requirements may vary depending on a number of factors, including material and tools. We recommend you test your particular application before ordering. Contact us for free samples.
