AVK Threaded Inserts or Rivet Nuts are blind installed threaded fasteners that feature a knurled body and are ideal installing into the front side of a panel, tube or structure when the backside is inaccessible. They are installed in punched or drilled holes, and have increased strength when used with various mating screws.
When installed, the AVK Threaded Insert’s knurled body expands 360 degrees and fills the hole. This feature provides exceptional torque strength and vibration resistance. The Rivet Nut forms a backside flange onto the material and remains captive to a mating component which can be attached using standard hardware. AVK Inserts can be installed in thinner materials without using weld nuts, clinch nuts and threaded screws.
