1. How do threaded inserts work?

Our threaded inserts are designed with threads on the outside and inside of the insert. Each insert is either threaded into a pre-tapped hole or taps its own thread in a drilled or molded hole. Once this is complete, it is then anchored and stays in place.

2. What applications can I use E-Z Hex inserts for?

Our E-Z Hex inserts are a perfect choice for a number of applications like:

  • Ready to Assemble Furniture
  • Drawer Pulls
  • Display Cases
  • Crating
  • Materials such as pine, plywood, composition board, and MDF
  • ...anywhere a threaded fastener is installed in softwood
