What are E-Z LOK Threaded Inserts?

E-Z LOK threaded inserts are fasteners designed to be inserted into a pre-drilled hole in wood, plastic, or metal surfaces to provide a secure threaded hole for a bolt, screw, or other threaded fastener. These inserts create reliable and durable threads in materials that are too soft or thin to hold threads on their own or on materials with unthreaded, damaged or thread stripped holes that need to be repaired. By distributing the stress over a larger area, E-Z LOK threaded inserts prevent stripping and wear, ensuring a reliable and long-lasting connection. They are ideal for both repair applications and new installations where secure and reusable threads are required.

E-Z LOK is a trusted brand name in threaded inserts, known for quality and reliability. Their products are engineered to meet the highest standards, ensuring excellent performance in demanding applications. Whether you are working in aerospace, automotive, electronics, or general manufacturing, E-Z LOK threaded inserts provide the solution you need for creating strong, durable threads in any material.
