Superior holding power in hardwood 08 July 2024

E-Z LOK, a manufacturer of threaded inserts for metal, plastic and wood, has added the E-Z™ Knife brass and stainless steel threaded inserts to its product offering, specifically designed for hardwood applications.

Suited for use in hardwoods such as 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.

The inserts are machined from brass or stainless steel, with internal thread sizes range from M3 to M8. The brass inserts are ideal for furniture, cabinetry and partitions, while stainless steel alternatives can be used in highly corrosive environments, such as marine applications.

E-Z™ Knife threaded inserts and thread repair kits provide an easy solution for adding machine threads to hardwood and can be easily installed using a bolt/jam nut, or optional drive tool. These inserts can also be used for softwood.
