Knife Thread Inserts

For hard woods like cherry, oak, and maple, you need an insert that can cut into the wood easily. Our proprietary woodworkers hardware does just that, providing superior holding power that can withstand up to 1,215 pounds of pull-out force. (Varies by insert model and wood type.)
Our knife thread wood fasteners are ideal for applications where assembly/disassembly could cause thread stripping or erosion. They are commonly used for:
  • Furniture
  • Cabinetry
  • Partitions
  • Shipping containers

E-Z LOK  knife thread hard wood inserts are available in brass and stainless steel. Internal thread sizes ranging from #4 to 3/8 and M3 to M8 are available.

Hex Drive Inserts

Our hex drive threaded inserts provide strong machine threads in soft woods like pine, composition board, MDF, and plywood. Manufactured from die cast zinc alloy, these soft wood fasteners utilize broad external threads to provide superior holding power.
We offer our hex drive woodworkers hardware in two styles. Flush inserts are designed for use in below-surface installation and on curves. Flanged inserts provide a precise depth during installation. Both styles of hex drive wood fasteners are useful anywhere a threaded fastener is going into soft wood. They are designed to prevent thread stripping and erosion caused by assembly and/or disassembly. Common applications include:
  • Ready-to-assemble furniture
  • Drawer pulls
  • Display cases
  • Crating 
Our hex drive wood fasteners are available with internal thread sizes from #8 to 3/8-16, as well as M6 and M8. They’re easy to install, requiring only an Allen wrench or an optional drive tool.

Finsert Threaded Inserts

E-Z LOK’s Finsert threaded wood fasteners press into place for quick and easy installation in soft woods like composition board, pine, and MDF. Perfect for light duty use where thread erosion is the primary concern, these soft wood inserts are available in various standard lengths and with internal threads ranging from #6 to 5/16-18.
Important Note: Hole size requirements may vary depending on a number of factors, including material and tools. We recommend that you test your particular application before ordering. We gladly supply free samples.
