Product Description

E-Z LOK Hex Drive inserts for soft wood are an inexpensive insert for use in ready-to-assemble furniture, drawer pulls, or wherever the avoidance of thread stripping is desired. Ideal for use in materials such as pine, plywood, composition board, and MDF, Hex Drive inserts feature tapered external threads which resist pull out caused by vibration. These die-cast zinc inserts are available in a flush design for "below the surface" installation or in a flanged design for installation depth limiting applications.

I bought these based on another review that said they work for fixing wobbly legs on West Elm chairs, after failing to find what I needed at several local hardware stores (most stores don't have metric version of these things, which are called "wood inserts", I'm told). That reviewer was 100% correct: these are perfect for that job. The inserts in the West Elm chair legs are made out of very cheap metal a few have simply disintegrated after tightening up the bolts. The only difference is that these don't have the flange on the end to prevent you from inserting it too far into the wood (if you have a West Elm chair, you'll see what I mean), so just be careful not to screw them too far.

This are very high quality, apparently better than the ones originally used by West Elm. They feel much sturdier. I think the wood will wear out before the tines on this the next time the chair breaks. And now I have extras.

They weren't an exact one for one match, for these are about half the depth as the originals, but they screwed in perfectly and have more than enough grip. The chair leg no longer even wobbles.

Very glad I found these, once I learned the proper terminology.

I practiced installing the insert in wood a couple of times to get the correct size hole. When I went to install the insert it was in a plastic ball the hex socket failed. I couldn't drive it further in or remove it. The plastic ball may have been harder than the wood or I may have weakened the socket by practicing. I salvaged it by grinding off the protruding portion of the insert. It works well for my intended use.

My only frustration with the product is that you have to buy a large quantity. I only needed one. I could not find a store that sold metric inserts for wood, so I had to order online. I noticed others posted the same issue in their reviews. Wish there was some way we could have contact with each other or had the option of buying a smaller quantity. There are now multiple people with inserts they have no use for.

Great product. As expected and seemingly good quality. They worked perfectly to fix a few furniture items that had started coming apart.
