purchased this because I stripped some threads from over tightening on several mountain bike components. components are aluminum so slightly over tightening will strip the thread, but luckily these thread repair tools exist. if you ever need to use such type system I would not recommend any of the local auto parts thread repair packs. having used them before I was very disappointed with the results. the helicoil kit is an effortless installation and restores threads in a few minutes. great product, very satisfied with results.

Used this to repair 2 stripped threaded holes on an FMF muffler. Worked great. Drilled them out with a 13/64" drill bit (as directed), ran the provided tap (using this Vermont American 21916 T-Handle Tap Wrench 0 through 1/4 Inch), and installed the heli coil with the provided tool, adding some Loctite 37421 271 Red Heavy Duty Threadlocker to keep the heli coil from coming out.

This was my first time doing a heli coil and it was surprisingly easy. And the new bolts went it smoothly and without a hitch. Highly recommended!

This is a little pricey for what it is and the "tool" takes a little getting used to. That said, this little critter fixed a stripped out pinch bolt on a $150 Dura Ace bicycle derailleur in about 10 minutes, so it easily paid for itself and I still have plenty of helicoils left over.

We needed to repair the hub on our Harken furler this summer (one of the original M5 Helicoil inserts had come undone) -- after getting a replacement Helicoil insert from the vendor, this insertion tool made the repair job easy.

I used this to repair a stripped out carburetor. Worked perfectly and there were no leaks on the carb. This item saved me quite a bit of coin. The size sold is of the size of the bolt, screw or threaded hole size. Don't worry too much about the size of the tap itself unless you need to buy a drill bit as it will be bigger than the size you would use normally for the size bolt you have. I actually waited until the product showed up, then I checked to see if I had the correct drill bit. I did so everything went well. I guess if you don't have the bit you need, you can then run out and get a drill bit or a set. Good luck!

Does what its supposed to, I use helicoil alot, but being the price is $30 these days least they could do is GIVE YOU THE DRILL BIT!!! Hate chasing one down, especially when they try to make the metric ones work with standard drill bits, seriously??? They work, but smaller metric bolts are a bit loose in the threads. Not as tight of a tolerance as the ones for standard thread bolts.

This product works just as described. The installation is straight forward and anyone that can use a drill and follow directions can install Helicoils. The repaired screw holes are actually better than when new.

This product doesn't come with any instructions but plenty of information including videos are available on-line. I used it on a Dura Ace rear deraillluer cable stop bolt. Worked great!
