How to install our threaded inserts Plug Nuts®

Plug Nuts® threaded inserts are installed in a simple two-step process using low cost tooling; punch and anvil.

Step 1:
Drill or punch recommended hole size in product material. Place Plug Nut on top of hole and locate in line with press punch and anvil.

Step 2:
Press Plug Nut into hole. Use sufficient pressure to properly seat the head by slightly embedding it a few thousandths into the surface of the component material.
