Thin-Sheet Nutsert Threaded Insert

High-quality Thin-Sheet Nutsert Threaded Insert

Thin-Sheet Nutsert Threaded Insert The Avdel Thin Sheet Nutsert is a blind threaded insert designed to provide load bearing threads in thin sheet materials. The large flange version gives the Thin Sheet Nutsert rivet nut a greater load bearing surface whilst a closed end prevents the ingress of dirt and fluids into the thread and electrical circuits.
