Keylocking Threaded Inserts
Acme Keylocking Threaded Inserts are used to quickly repair stripped, damaged or worn out threads with new stronger threads or for use in original equipment. Acme Inserts are easy to install and easy to remove. No special drills, taps or pre-winder tools are required. The Keys are driven down into the threads of the surrounding base material, locking the insert in place.
