Rated 5 out of 5 by as good as they get not used inserts from screwfix before but as with most of their products these are great value and work a treat 5/5 from me 20 Mar 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Insert Nuts Great for restoring improving furniture items such as bed rails etc. As always Screwfix delivered as promised that following day. Have never had any problems with delivery - great service and will continue to use. 9 Mar 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great product and great price - recommended without reservation 30 Jan 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent gizmos These are one of those gizmos that are impossible to find in high street stores. What a pleasure it is to find them at Screwfix and at a price that is far less than on 'that site'. In use, I used an 8mm drill for the pilot hole and then simply wound them into the hole with a 6mm hex key. Simply and very effective. Thank you Screwfix for superb value yet again. 16 Dec 2015

In assembling a wardrobe the fastening between hardboard back and chipboard side panel stripped the chipboard hole when the hardboard flexed.

Would these work to create a new hole in the chipboard to take a bolt or screw?

Hello,

We wouldn't be able to recommend a specific purpose for this other than what the manufacturer has stated: "For providing a strong, rigid finish when fixing panels and frames." Sorry we cannot be more specific as we do not know the intricacies of your task.

Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Hello Francesca,

This is a 'push-in' insert nut, therefore an M6 hole would be suitable and then the nut would need to be pushed/hammered into place.

Thank you for using Q&A.

Answer: 
I use 8mm pilot hole bit for solid soft wood. Use an allen key to slowly wind the insert into the hole. You will need to press firmly at first until it cuts its own thread in the pilot hole. Once the insert has cut its own thread you can wind it in completely flush for a very neat finish. For panels like ply or hardwood they also work very well but use a smaller pilot hole.

Answer: 
As one of the other answers said, an 8mm drill and screwing in with an allen key works well.But I would add that you can try it in a piece of similar scrap wood, remove with the allen key, and then reuse for the correct piece..
