Anchor nuts are designed for blind mounted applications where it is impractical to use hex nuts or where it is desirable to have an attached nut for ease of maintenance.
what I wanted
The nut-plates arrived quickly, and very well packaged. The quality is second to none!
High quality, a great design, and expensive. In my opinion, worth it for select applications. I used nine of these on a wheel pant installation. Two items: (1) get the right size pop rivets (2) careful with those threads when using. Make sure you get 2 or 3 turns just with your fingers as a start. These are very easy to cross-thread with a machine screw fastener.
Before ordering these, I noted that one reviewer complained about the threads not being very well done. I found that his review was accurate. I do not have a suitable tap to clean out the threads, as that reviewer did, so I just had to lubricate the threads and force a bolt through the nuts several times to make them useable. These are rather expensive items and there should be no excuse for such expensive items being of such poor quality.
All in all a good product but you need to check them I found one of them to only have been drilled and threaded halfway through.. It was not worth the time to me to send back for a replacement...
I had to run a 10-32 tap through a few of these to rethread them, couldn’t get a screw through it otherwise.
