E-Z Press™ Inserts for Plastic (Thermoset or Thermoplastic)
E-Z Press™ inserts are threaded inserts designed for post-molding installation in either thermoset plastics or thermoplastics. A slotted design with diamond-knurled OD allows for “cold” installation with optimum torque/pull-out resistance. Cold installation of threaded inserts reduces the cost of moldings and eliminates the need to “chase” threads after molding.
Our E-Z Press™ inserts are available in three styles: flush, flanged, and reverse slot. All three types press into place for fast, easy installation. Anything from a rubber mallet to an arbor press can be used for installation.
Reduce the cost of moldings
Cut reject waste caused by misaligned and faulty inserts
Eliminate the need to “chase” threads after molding
Install properly without a precise hole depth
As the E-Z Press™ insert is installed, it compresses slightly along the slot. As the fastener is threaded into place, the insert expands and the diamond knurl is pressed into the wall of the hole, securing the insert in place.
