Default Threaded Inserts

I was thinking about using Threaded Metal Wood inserts to secure my subwoofers with Cap Bolts. I do not want to use H or T nuts, I want to use the threaded style.

What type of glue or adhesive would you suggest for securing them into the enclosure. It is made of 3/4 MDF

Thanks

i personally use a medium consistency CA glue if I use T-nuts or threaded inserts in wood.

Yea, I was a little worried about the shear strength of CA?

What size of insert do you use ?

I use t-nuts, and use PL premium glue to secure them to the baffle. Never had an issue with one backing out or spinning.

I've seen people suggest Fasco #110 for strength when bonding un-like surfaces, but I always have PL on hand so just use that.

Same stuff should work for threaded type. Any reason you prefer threaded over t nuts? Are you using MDF or Ply?

I'm using MDF, Threaded Inserts seem like they would be less problematic than T or H Nuts

That's probably just fine then, I used threaded inserts once on MDF and they came out great.

Only complaint I've seen personally on T-nuts if that they are finnicky in MDF.

I would pre drill for the insert and lay some PL/Fasco/Whatever you come up with in the hole, sink your insert and call it a day.

When everything is wired up and working well, I go back coat the screws with some blue threadlocker so they don't turn themselves out of the inserts over time.

IMO it's not worth the risk. But to each his own. After having a couple T nuts back out I wrote that off permanently.

It would suck if I had a t-nut fail in some way. I would basically be up shit creek since they're 1/4" t-nuts and bolts, so keep that in mind.

I'm not using T nuts, I am going to use externally threaded inserts for wood, the hex style like EZ LOK or the round slotted brass style

No one mentioned spiked T-Nuts?!

Currently using these in my box and trust me, you'd have to strong hold or turn to twist them...but I doubt it since they're a pretty big in size.

now the regular t-nuts I agree. Those suck and don't stay put once you put the sub in and find out the t-nut is sitting on the bottom of the box and you gotta pull the sub out.
