Default T-nuts / Hurricane Nuts / Barbed Nuts. Which is best??

Ive never used any of these before but I want to use them to mount some amps in an amp rack. And probably to mount an interchangable port

T NUTS from Parts Express ship same day and come with 45 day money back guarantee. Free Shipping Available. Order free 10,000 product catalog.

So theres all these kinds of hurricane nuts, which is best??

From what I understand, say I have a box that looks like this, 3 subs, and a hole in the baffle for an interchangeable port, t-nuts every couple inches



Is all you have to do is say drill a hole, hit the nut in with the hammer and your done? Does it sit flush with the wood? Or do you have to countersink a little but of the top of the drilled hole to make it sit flush?

Which nuts would be the best??!!

Pics or help appreciated

I'd go with hurricane nuts. They auger into the hole and you can drill the flange and peg it in place with a small diameter screw.

I used tee nuts on my baffle and they've been nothing but a major pain since day one.

i used the 6 prong and drill a hole and i ratchet them into the wood. there gonna be pretty darn flush. not all the way flat. if there on the back side of the board being flush shouldnt matter that much.

Madmat is right {he usually is}

If you use T nuts, you have to glue them in with hot wood glue or they will work themselves out of the hole if you place reverse torque on the bolts.

I've glued mine in with CA and due to the plating the CA won't bond to the tee nuts.

Next go round is gonna be something else. The barbed nuts look like they might damage the MDF...

are you suppose to use bolts to go into the t-nuts? I'm lookin for somethin similar to hold on a panel to my battery box. Must be removable, and industrial velcro don't stick too well to carpet
