EZ-Lok Thread Repair Inserts
E-Z LOK Inserts are a solid style threaded insert made from either carbon or stainless steel. These inserts come in several varieties, including metric and American in thin wall, heavy duty, or extra heavy duty. There are also inserts with American to metric threads, or metric to American threads. E-Z Lok inserts are very easy to install, partially because they only use standard drills and taps, no special tooling is required. During installation, the adhesive in the exterior threads is activated, strongly locking the inserts into place.
E-Z LOK (Solid Wall) threaded inserts for metal are installed using standard tools. Simply drill the appropriately sized hole with a standard drill, tap the hole with a standard tap, and then turn in the E-Z LOK like an ordinary fastener with a screwdriver, bolt and jam nut, or an E-Z LOK drive tool. Installation is as easy as 1-2-3.
E-Z LOK inserts are self-locking. Immediately upon installation, pre-applied LOCTITE on the external threads begins to set and the newly installed insert is fastener ready in minutes. At full cure (72 hours), the LOCTITE seals against liquids and gases to pressures of 6,000 psi.
