    They sometimes spin whilst your are trying to force the bolt up when spinning the nut so you may have to reef the bolt to one side or take it out and expand it a bit and ram it back in to the hole and start again.
    Yeah got that bit & the reason why it happens is the nut on the bolt grabs on one surface of the washer in turn the washer grads the face of the nutsert & as you turn the nut the whole lot starts turning together which means your winding the the nutsert back off the bolt at the same time.....

    By using 2 washers with a little grease in-between them should create a point of least resistance so in theory when the nut on the bolt grabs the surface of the washer & starts turning it, it should just slip against the second washer instead of turning the nutsert.

    As I said though its only "in theory" & if you play with these things at work I recon you could test out my theory for me & let me know if it works......


    Cheers Old mate.

    Roofy, if your going to use these for a snorkel then I'll get some for you we have buckets of these to nustert into poles.

    remind me and I'll bring some nutserts, washers, split washers, torx bolts and torx key for ya too.

    Remind me though, I have a memory like a kicked in fish.

    Torx bolts are great, anti theft and look the goods!

    Great thread andy. Just one question - what are the nutserts made of?

    Need to be careful of Galvanic Corrosion (dissimilar metals in close proximity plus an electrolyte (water) creates an electrical current and corrodes the "sacrificial" metal). Ensure the nutserts are sacrificial to mild steel panels to prevent rusting your panels out. I got aluminium nutserts to secure the 2nd battery tray. Aluminium is sacrificial to mild steel and is very close on the galvanic table which means very low reaction between the two.

    Here's a galvanic table for reference:

    Good call mate not sure but they have been used on steel posts for decades with no rusting. Brass or nickel rings a bell but I'll have to double check tomoz

    AB why can you not get nutsert tool to use?

    And yes roof rack on rally car was nutserted on with fabricated brackets. (mate did his own and, I din't know until recently what they were called).

    "Specific Fasteners" Slacks Creek do carry full range of them.

    Are nutserts the same as rivserts?? Sorry for the dumb question, but I know how rivserts work, and plan on getting one to attach the camera to the car (and stuff to the trailer) and generally just to add to my collection of 'man toys'!!! LOL
