E-Z LOK Threaded Inserts for Hardwood

E-Z LOK, a leading manufacturer and master distributor of threaded inserts for metal, plastic and wood is now offering E-Z™ Knife brass and stainless steel threaded inserts for wood.

Suited for use in hardwoods like oak, cherry and maple, these inserts are ideal wherever assembly or disassembly could cause thread erosion or stripping. E-Z Knife™ threaded inserts use a proprietary external “knife” thread to slice into the wood and provide superior holding power.  They are most often machined out of brass when internal thread sizes range from #4 to ⅜ or M3 to M8. Notable features include superior hardwood holding power with sizes available in inch (coarse/fine) and metric. The inserts easily install with a bolt/jam nut or optional drive tool.

Brass inserts are ideal for furniture, cabinetry and partitions, while stainless steel is used in marine applications. Several industries including shipping containers, outdoor furniture and storm shutters use either.

E-Z™ Knife threaded inserts and thread repair kits provide an easy solution for adding machine threads to hard woods. They can also be used for softwood, but they are not recommended for plywood. A proprietary external thread for superior holding power is used by these inserts.
