Insert Nuts Type D M6 x 20mm Pack of 50
Great - Use Type D not E
I really rate these fixings and use them for some quite large bits of furniture. I prefer the longer ones, with the flanged front, which is stronger than the "invisible" type (that's E type), which can split when being positioned in hardwood. They positions well, and with a dab of threadlock on the M6 bolt that goes in, a really secure and shakeproof fix is achieved, one that can be undone and re-fixed without any problem at all.

Used these on a CNC router bed 22mm MDF sacrificial board for the hold down clamps found them solid, I used exterior wood glue with them for a stronger hold, none have moved so far,

I've used these on solid timber and find them reliable and easy to use provided the correct size hole is drilled. To prevent any breakout I usually countersink the hole slightly which also means the head is flush with the timber.

Type D Insert Nut
Found this to be an eay to use insert nut provided the correct size pilot hole is drilled first. There can be a bit of break away around the hole as the nut bites into man-made boards. Correctly inserted it has good holding power.
