Product Details

The JACK NUT threaded insert is an economical blind fastener designed for assembly-line use in thin, soft, or brittle materials. When tightened, the body collapses to form four legs which grip the inside of the mounting surface, leaving a permanent, reusable threaded insert. Jack nuts are ideal for installing a strong captive steel thread into materials which would be unsuitable for other techniques, or where the hole is too large for the thread you wish to use.


Features and benefits:

 

  • Fastens in blind holes
  • Won't distort or deform soft plastics or thin sheet metals
  • Fast, inexpensive, and easy to use
  • Not hole-size sensitive
  • Fastens securely despite burrs or uneven substrate
  • Suitable for a wide grip range
  • Can be set with manual or pneumatic tools
  • Removable

 


Jack Nuts are suitable for the following materials:

 

  • Any rigid thick material and blind holes where a rivet nut is either out of grip or cannot get a purchase.
  • Wood, chipboard, particle board, hardboard, MDF and most other wood products.
  • Glass reinforced plastics (GRP) .
  • Most rigid plastics (PVC, polythene, polypropylene etc, etc)
  • Composites.
