Overview

E-Z LOK™ Threaded Insert for Metal - Extra Heavy Wall - 303 Stainless 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.

E-Z LOK™ (Solid Wall) Extra Heavy 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.
  • 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
  • Ideal for soft metals, like aluminum, cast iron, and magnesium

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.
