E-Z LOK™ Threaded Insert for Metal - Extra Heavy Wall - Carbon Steel - 5/16-18 x 9/16-12

E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) threaded inserts with Extra Heavy Wall are ideal for reducing the size of tapped holes, typically after previous drilling/re-tapping operations. Like all E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) threaded inserts, the Extra Heavy Wall design is installed using standard drills and taps. Installation is performed with a screwdriver, bolt/jam nut, or optional E-Z LOK™ drive tool.


  • Strong: screw machined out of solid steel for greater strength
  • Easy to Install: simply drill, tap, and thread in like an ordinary fastener
  • Standard OD Threads: permit the use of standard drills and taps
  • Self-Locking: preapplied adhesive activates upon installation
  • Vibration Resistant: adhesive secures the insert in place so it won’t back out
  • Seals against Liquids/Gases: to pressures of 6,000 psi.


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


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.
