Insert Nuts For Wood Type A

SKU: FF11 Categories: ,

Insert Nuts Type A provide a strong permanent thread for wood and wood based materials. Originally developed for retention of speaker baffles, the coarse external tooth (barbed) push-in style of the Type A pattern ensures maximum holding power and easy installation by knocking the insert into the base material, providing good holding power in particle board and edge-grain.

Use with joint connector bolts for furniture assembly.

Available from stock in zinc alloy from M3 to M10 in various lengths and finishes (usually zinc or zinc & yellow). Other materials, diameters and lengths are available to order. We also offer insert nuts for wood type A in UNC and UNF on a short lead time with BSW and BSF also available to order.
