Blind Threaded Inserts
A-L Series Inserts – Aluminum
A-L Series Aluminum Threaded Inserts are blinded threaded fasteners that feature a knurled body and large diameter low profile head. A-L Series Aluminum Inserts are ideal for lightweight applications that feature drilled or punched holes. AVK Inserts are the perfect threaded fastener for installing into the front side of a panel, tube or structure when the backside is inaccessible. A-L Series Inserts also come in a Closed-End style, and a standard zinc/yellow trivalent finish.
When installed, the A-L Series Aluminum Insert’s knurled body expands 360 degrees and fills the hole. This feature provides exceptional torque strength and vibration resistance. The insert 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.
