Threaded inserts are an essential part of a variety of project types. Whether you're working with wood, metal or plastic, threaded inserts can help you create the solid bond you need. Bay Supply is the first online marketplace for the fastening industry. On our innovative website, sourcing professionals, manufacturers and distributors can easily collaborate and transact business.
Types of Threaded Inserts
At Bay Supply, we have 4 main types of threaded inserts for our customers to choose from:
- Helical inserts – Helical inserts are coiled wire inserts used to repair stripped threading and reinforce bolted connections. The coils, which are wider than the tapped hole, are inserted into the hole. As the bolt is screwed down into the coil, the coil expands, resulting in a tight, permanent bond that is even stronger than the original bolt fastening.
- Rivet nut inserts – Rivet nut inserts are internally threaded fasteners placed in thin or brittle materials that are not suitable for hole tapping. They have a wide range of applications, including aerospace, marine, automotive and electronics, and are also often used in tubing.
- Key locking inserts – Key Locking Inserts by Recoil® are the perfect solution for when you need to repair or reinforce damaged, worn or stripped threads. After you have installed them, key locking inserts will create a strong, permanent bond in nearly all materials. And they won't rotate due to torsion or vibration. We offer thin wall, heavy duty, extra heavy duty and solid key locking inserts.
- Non-locking inserts – Our non-locking keenserts are made with unrivaled quality to give our customers the dependable results they can count on. You can place them in an existing hole with stripped threads allowing for easier installation for bolts. From miniature to extra heavy-duty, they are perfect for trucks, small engines and MRO tasks.
