Threaded inserts, also known as threaded bushings, are used to create joins or to repair stripped or worn out threads. They are simple to install and remove and are frequently used as a captive plug in knockdown furniture, allowing two pieces to be connected with a machine screw.
Essentra has a large selection of threaded bushings for use on various types of materials, including metal, wood, plastic and particle board. We offer helical, keylocking, knife-thread, press-fit, rivet nut, self-locking and self-tapping threaded inserts.
