Zinc Plated Steel Nutserts are Large Flange with splines – so the stay put!
Our Zinc Plated Steel Nutserts are made from mild steel that has been painstakingly plated (carefully) with white zinc – and they are compatible with fittings of the proper thread size. They require a correctly sized mandrel and the appropriate Nutsert Tool for installation. Our Nutsert Tool Mandrels fit our line of Rivet Nut Insertion Tools. They are industry fabrication quality and IMHO – one of the best hand tools around. Mandrels are what are required to ‘set’ a nutsert into a panel.

Nutserts (Rivet Nuts) are used to place a permanent fastener (nut) inside a closed structure (like a frame tube or a metal post) or behind a panel (like a body panel). This fastening method allows fittings to be screwed into and tightened without needing a wrench behind the panel to hold a nut. Use of this type of fastening point is common when installing body kits to cars, rear wings, front spoilers / bumpers / scoops, or completing panel work. Because Rivet Nuts are robust and light, they have long been used on aircraft and race cars / bikes.
