Designed to repair damaged threads or for use in original equipment, Keysert® and KEENSERTS® inserts provide easy installation and versatility.

Featuring a key-locking action that prevents rotation due to vibration or torsion, commercial-grade Keysert and KEENSERTS® inserts can be used in a wide range of materials and applications.

Commercial-grade Keyserts are available in carbon and stainless steel, both inch and metric series, and are supplied in Thinwall, Heavy Duty, Extra Heavy Duty, and Solid styles. Keysert inserts are offered individually or in kits.

Available in stainless steel, KEENSERTS inserts are manufactured and tested according to MIL-I-45914 rev A. This rigorous process includes testing internal and external threads (proof and pull-out), torque-out, locking torque (where applicable), non-destructive testing, and magnetic permeability testing. In addition, KEENSERTS inserts offer complete traceability, counterbored leading internal threads, and are available in internal thread-locking and miniature sizes.
