Our original Nutsert Placing Tool (Part No. 659) is a light-duty tool designed for occasional use and field repairs. If you plan to install more than a half-dozen Insert Nuts, this tool will make the job considerably easier. Just thread the insert onto the mandrel, place the insert in the hole, and twist the T-handle while holding the side handle steady. Once the insert is installed, unscrew the T-handle from the insert.
The quick-change nose design allows you to convert the tool to whatever thread size you need. Requires the appropriate Hi-Torquer Conversion Kit (Part No. 1185-101, sold separately) to match the inserts you will be installing.
If you will be installing dozens of Insert Nuts, or if you need to install 10-32 Rivet Nuts (Part No. 650-3), our Double-Action Lever Tool (Part No. 1185-002) makes the job easier. For serious assembly-line work, or for 1/4-28 Rivet Nuts, our Plunger Double-Action Lever Tool (Part No. 1185-003) is a must.
