Comparing Threaded Inserts for Wood
E-Z LOK's threaded wood inserts are available in a variety of options. Knowing how to differentiate them will help you select the proper type for you. The three types of threaded inserts for wood we offer are the following: E-Z Knife, E-Z Hex and E-Z Fin. If you're dealing with hardwoods like okay, cherry and maple, we recommend the E-Z Knife. When it comes to softwood applications like plywood, MDF and composition board, the best option is the E-Z Hex. Plastic and soft wood applications are best suited for the E-Z Fin which minimizes splitting and splintering.
