Thread Insert Tools
Compress (crimp or pancake) threaded nuts into pre-punched or pre-drilled holes in sheet metal and plastic sheeting with a thread insert tool. This tool is also commonly referred to as a threaded insert tool, nutsert, helicoil insert tool, or rivnut tool. It allows you to position nuts in metal where previously there were none, for mounting panels, plates, roof mounts, spoilers, and so on. The thread insert tools category encompases manual tools or electric or pneumatic tools, as well as headsets, mandrels, prewinders and other extras.
