E-Z LOK Inserts
E-Z LOK™ is a family owned and operated business founded in 1956. E-Z LOK started with the creation of its proprietary solid wall threaded insert designed for use in soft metals like aluminum, magnesium, and cast iron. The E-Z LOK design allows users to repair damaged or worn out threads without the need for special taps or installation tools.
Over the years, the E-Z LOK product line expanded to include inserts for plastic and wood, as well as coil (helical) threaded inserts for metal.
The E-Z LOK’s E-Z Coil™ line of coil (helical) inserts quickly repair damaged threads in soft metals and protect tapped holes from stripping and wear.
E-Z LOK threaded inserts for plastic are intended for post-molding installation. Ultrasonic inserts are designed for use in thermoplastics, while Press Inserts can be used in either thermoplastics or thermoset plastics.
E-Z LOK threaded inserts for wood are offered in designs for hard and soft wood. Knife Thread inserts provide a strong, machine thread in hard woods like oak, cherry, and maple. The zinc die cast Hex Drive inserts offer a cost effective solution for soft woods like pine, composition board, and MDF.
