What is a solid insert?

Camloc KeenSerts® are high strength solid inserts perfect for strengthening existing threads, or repairing or replacing damaged or stripped threads, enabling the damaged thread to be replaced with the same size thread.

Available in a range of metric and imperial thread dimensions and suitable for many applications.

How are KeenSerts installed?

Installing Camloc KeenSerts is a three-step process that secures the insert into a damaged or stripped thread.

First, the hole is prepared by drilling with the correct diameter drill bit, followed by an optional countersinking step to create a smooth entry point.

Next, the hole requires the creation of new threads using a tap that matches the size of your Keensert. Finally, the Keensert is screwed into the prepared hole and the keys are driven into the material using appropriate installation tooling, permanently locking the insert in place.
