E-Z Lok, a leading manufacturer and master distributor of threaded inserts for metal, plastic, and wood now offers E-Z Coil™ and thread repair kits.

Wire or helical coil threaded inserts quickly repair or reinforce tapped holes in soft metals. Made from 18-8 stainless-steel wire, these helical coil inserts are corrosion resistant and can withstand temperatures up to 800°F. Furthermore, they offer corrosion resistance and protection from wearing and stripping.

E-Z Coil helical insert coils are manufactured by forming the stainless-steel wire into a diamond shape and then winding it into a spring. Prior to installation, the insert diameters are larger than the tapped hole.  During installation, the insert diameter of the helical coil insert is reduced, allowing the insert to thread into the hole. Once properly installed, the radial pressure of the released insert holds the insert firmly in place.

Thread repair kits are available in both standard and economy, and in a variety of sizes. Each Economy E-Z Coil thread repair kit includes a set of inserts, an STI tap, and an installation tool. The standard kit also includes a tang break tool and drill bit.
