E-Z Hex™ Threaded Inserts for Wood

Generically referred to as Type D (flanged) or Type E (flush) insert nuts, E-Z Hex™ (Hex Drive) inserts provide sturdy machine threads in soft woods. These hex drives are an ideal solution for any application where assembly or disassembly could lead to thread erosion or stripping.

The E-Z Hex™ threaded insert for wood features broad external threads that provide exceptional holding power in materials like pine, composition board, MDF and plywood. We offer E-Z Hex™ with internal thread sizes ranging from #8 to ⅜-16, plus M6 and M8. Most of our Type E and Type D insert nuts are available in a variety of lengths to meet the needs of your unique application. Die-cast from a durable zinc alloy, E-Z Hex™ threaded inserts install quickly with an Allen wrench or optional drive tool. Try our E-Z Hex™ (Hex Drive) Kits as well, which come with all the tools needed to install your inserts.
