Expansion Inserts

A range of expansion inserts suitable for use with most plastic materials, using either through or blind holes. Knurled outer diameter with expansion slots prevent rotation or loosening due to vibration and ensures consistent self-locking pressure on the fixing screws

Features and Benefits:

Use in drilled or moulded-in holes
Install by simple press or hammer-in methods

Available with Flush Head (RS 278-534, RS 278-540, RS 278-556, RS 278-562, RS 278-578)
Available with Flange Head (RS 278-584, RS 278-590, RS 278-607, RS 278-613, RS 278-629)

Typical Applications:

Threaded inserts are available in various materials and finishes and metric course threads to suit every application. Expansion inserts are ideal for plastics which can resist the expansion of the insert but also flexible to let the knurls anchor into the material. Threaded expansion inserts are designed to provide strong reusable threads in thermoset and other hard plastics and are commonly used in plastic casings and housing.
