There's not much to say about a simple hardware product, but the E-Z LOK inserts are just as described. If you need a nut insert for hard wood, this is an excellent product.

They work great, but you need a seriously large drill bit and a seriously large screwdriver to install them. Once you do, however, they are rock-solid.

These are advertised as made in the USA. The packaging clearly indicates this product is made in Taiwan.

Fastener Size: M5-0.8Outside Thread Size: N/ANumber of Items: 10Overall Length: 12.70Inside Thread Size: M5-0.8 Verified Purchase
The device worked just as advertised for my purposes. I would say that some official instructions on how to install them would be nice. There seems to be some disagreement on the internet as to whether the slot is there to help drive the insert into the wood with a flat-head screwdriver or whether it is there to help sink the insert into the wood. I could not find manufacturer's instructions anywhere.

Since these are installed to receive machine screws, they have to be placed very precisely and installed perfectly normal to the surface. I would recommend a drill with levels on it to ensure that your pre-drilled holes are drilled properly and that you drive the insert into the hole appropriately.

These adapters are made from VERY flimsy metal. When I tried to hand-screw them into plywood using a screwdriver that fit the slot well, I stripped 2 hopelessly. I had drilled the slot, as suggested, to the dimensions of the internal thread. I ended up going progressively all the way up to 1/4" before I got a hole drilled big enough that I could screw in the inserts, and by that time I had stripped 4 more. I expected brass inserts to be sturdier, but these are not. If you do get them, I suggest a 1/4" diameter for the pre-drilled hole.

The inserts itself is good but need careful installation on hard wood such as maple.
It will lift wood if you install with screw driver or bolt and nut method.
I found some youtube tutorial of insert install which uses drill press to push the insert down while turning the chuck manually.
I don't have drill press, so I decided not to use this after I messed up two holes (had to drill out and plug it with maple dowel).
Thanks to hard maple, it might be just okay without inserts..

I bought a rocking horse for my daughter that was made in Romania, in 1987. Over that time the original inserts deteriorated and needed to be replaced so my grandchildren could use the same hourse. These were a perfect fit.
