Stainless Steel Helical Inserts in Metric Sizes

Helicoil Inserts, also known as Helical Thread Inserts, Wire Inserts or Spring Inserts, are used to quickly repair damaged threads and to prevent tapped holes from wear and stripping. Stainless Steel Helical Inserts are commonly used in holes tapped into soft metals. Coil Inserts in this selection are made from corrosion resistant and durable 18-8 Stainless Steel and available in Metric sizes.

Helical Inserts are made of 18-8 Stainless Steel wire which is formed into a diamond pattern for strength and then wound or coiled into a spring shape. Before installation, the diameter of a helical insert will be larger than the tapped hole, but once properly installed the insert diameter reduces allowing the helical insert to thread the hole. After installation, E-Z Lok coil inserts will stay firmly in place as the radial pressure of the spring releases.

Stainless Steel Helical Threaded Inserts are ideal for applications requiring additional corrosion resistance, as well as automotive, food, beverage, and other clean-critical applications.
